Does anyone know how to get in contact with Idom Press.  I have ordered a LED light kit for a rotor box, but have not received it yet.  I have emailed them 3 times and called twice and have gotten no answer from them.  I am hoping that they are still in business.  I have never ordered anything from them so I don't know how they operate.  Any information on how to contact them other than email listed on there website or phone number would be great.

Thanks
John

It seems that other threads have asked the same question, and all have had the same observation--the owners have a habit of poor/no attention to communications.  Best you order from another source, since Idiom Press seems to have no intention to do any direct customer sales/service.  Perhaps a dealer that stock the products?

Added--The posts were in both the 'Company Reviews' and the 'Good Seller, Buyer Beware' topics.

LOL. Yes, about 10 carbon copy threads over several years. Look up "Idiom" in the search box.

Bob Locher, W9KNI - founder of Idiom Press in 1982, handed the company to his son,
 Rob Locher W7GH to run it -- a few years ago.

I presently use one of their fine keyers.  I ordered and received it very promptly.  I wanted to buy another of their kits recently but needed a question answered first.  I emailed them and after 6 months, still no answer.

Personally, I no intention of ever buying from Idiom or recommending their products again.  Nothing bothers me more than a company that is totally inconsiderate and unresponsive to their customers.

As for his "son taking over the business," I have seen this time and again.  The old man builds a fine business and after retiring hands it to his son.  Son flies it into the ground because of piss poor work ethic and simply laziness.  It appears to be the signs of the times.

As far as I'm concerned, Idiom is a "has been."

They were at Dayton last year and perhaps they will be again this year.
