Savatron emailed me several months ago asking for 12 Obi TPM pommels. I figured with an order that large, I might as well do a run for the forum. When I finally got around to posting the run specifics, he must have thought they were to pricey and he changed his order to 6 pommels. Still, with everyone else's interest, the run proceeded.
I made a request for 20 dollar per pommel down payment at the end of April. Savatron never made his downpayment (he was the only one out of 50+ people to not make his deposit). I had enough money collected because some people paid in full at the beginning to cover the material and anodizing costs so I let it slide. On June 7th, I posted a picture showing that all the machine work had been completed and asked that final payments be made soon. June 16th I posted a picture of the anodized pommels in hand and asked for final payment to be made. Around June 17th or 18th I sent Savatron a PM asking for payment - he responded saying he could not pay until the 20th. He did not make payment on the 20th as he said. I sent him a followup PM on June 21st and he informed me he could not pay until the 5th. I replied and asked that he at least pay the 20 dollar per pommel deposit. He responded asking if he could make multiple payments. I said yes - and Savatron never made a payment. July 5th came and went and I still have not received a single payment from Savatron. At this point, I am considering the pommels he ordered unclaimed and will sell them on this forum to recover my investment.
I would avoid dealing with Savatron as he has shown great reluctance to pay for what he ordered.
