    A is cheaper than B
    how old fashioned do you need to be for that to be an insult ?

    Jesus John!! I don't want to cross swords with you, under normal circumstances I would have nothing but good things to say about you.... your one of the main men.... pissing you off is like pissing my mum off, its just not done
    I just think you have got your knickers in a twist over this one

    don't hold it against me for locking horns with you John

    It looks to this newbie like there is some "history" that you old timers know that I don't.... and don't need to know... It's always good to see folk debating different views politely!

    As an aside, I personally like what I think is the Yank approach to freedom of speech... that anything goes, except directly inciting people to violence or summat like that... come to think of it I actually thought it was fairly close to that here in deepest Yorkshire?

    EDIT - Just to add that I suppose that each of us interprets the written word differently, and I interpretted the original post as being purely price-related in the context of whatever thread it was in. I have bought, and will be buying plenty of, stuff from Zapp as Gary seems to me to have a great reputation and provide quality goods and service!

    Nowt wrong with Zapp!

    Gary managed to ship me one 2.7 meter length of skinny HiWin rail which arrived unbent. Plus it was the threaded from behind variety I wanted. Plus I had a choice of 3 preloads on the block and advice so I got exactly what I needed and no need to comromise my design.

    I bought 3 of his 220 Volt stepper drivers and they are freakin' amazing, the speed and power is borderline scary.

    His stepper motor spec sheets have the torque versus speed graphs so I never have to buy a pig in a poke.

    He sent me spare balls when I managed to spill a ball nut and lose some.

    Can't say I have ever bought anything from Zapp that I have regretted and Gary actually seems to care that I am a happy bunny.

    I can see that if you have a shoe string budget you may have to shop around and take a chance on the best price, perhaps I am lucky that I don't have to risk it.

    No he never he asked to leave the site, just before i was about to ban him for telling me and everyone who didnt like the way he was speaking to them, somthing to the effect of "tuff shit", what he didnt no was the people he told that to where also the people he then called mates in the next sentence and who also expressed a problem with the way he was talking to people, what do you know?

    And just to put the facts on the table, that Jazz is well aware of!, Routout have never advertised on this site and never will. They sent me an email suggesting that they would be intrested in advertising but wouldnt unless i removed the thread in question. So that is the truth on that!

    If you want to believe gossip because you trust the person spreading it then thats fine by me, BUT DONT EVER! BRING MY NAME OR MORAL CREDIBILITY INTO IT.

    The way Jonathan worded it makes it sound as though Zapp should never be used. I'm all for alternatives being suggested, but to say "don't buy from" sounds as though there's some major reason not to use that supplier.
    That's because interpretation of the sentence isn't what was intended or meant, if you go and read the thread you can clearly see that JB's comment is in the context of the discussion. You will also note that he never used the word Never, you have. In the same amount of time it has taken some of you to post, you could have just as easy asked JB what he meant by his comment, then made your own judgement.

    Its to easy to think the worst of people, second guess them, then hold them at fault. When its just as easy to speak to them first.

    Right, but JB hasn't said A is better than B, look i dont want to drag this on any more then it needs to. I've reviewed JB's comment and im fine with it, i dont want to see you or any one leave the site John - but i will, that's just the nature of what i'm doing here.

    100% on the money with that Andy, you will notice that our moderator's have a small statement below their post's. It's their for a reason.

    There is somthing else here that keeps poping up, i think i've said this to some of you before but i think it keeps falling on deaf ears, i'll try again. What being a Moderator means to one person isn't the same as what it means to me, JB and the others do a Job for me and they do that Job exactly how i've asked them to do it. That job, title and/or meaning has nothing to do with any opinions they express when representing themselves as members of the forum.

    No one cares more about the success of this site/forum and what is to come more than me, so please, let me do the worrying and make the decisions on what is right and not right for the site, just like i have so far and in gettting us this far.

    You just enjoy the site, if i cant please you all and every time, sorry but it's just tuff there is nothing i can do about it.

    My feelings were the same, confirmed by asking JB.

    EDIT: My post has been sat on the desktop for a good hour now, im visiting my mum in milton keynes for my 30th on sunday. So not just copying what Andy has said because it "fits", i dont want to spend my time trying to sort this out this weekend guys, i dont get to see my family more than 1 or 2 times a year, so be good and sort this out between yourselves, ill hope for the best and speak to you on tuesday.

    Have a good weekend,
