poor quality zinc plating.
« on: July 06, 2015, 08:35:23 PM »
Hi everyone. I have recently sent parts to a place called hunting Dale plating. Any way half the parts come back with nearly every kind of problem you can get with zinc plating. The spokes and nipples were not usable. Any way I complained and was told if I returned the parts they would rework and cover postage back . so I sent back again. Now at this point I am over 100 dollars down in postage. Anyway a very quick turn around of one week...bit different to the first time when I waited approx 2 months, and I have them back. can't believe it everything looks good except spokes and nipples. I let them know. He says send them back and will rework. I ask if he will help with postage and never hear back. absolutely disgusted. poor workmanship. no quality control. I have given up and ordered a set from Thailand. Fingers crossed.

Cheers scott

Yep well. I can add a few more words in...like shafted,ripped,and that sux. By the way my nipples have black spots on them. And lumps on my spoke.That can't be right. And my wallet just jumped out of my pocket and ran away because it was feeling abused and apparently had an empty feeling. I am just being truing. So I guess I will go dial in Thailand and hopefully spin the wheels. :P ::)

Cheers scott.
