Very satisfied  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Recently I purchased a large cable entry panel from "Metalworks - Cable Entry Panel" and am really happy with this product. Chris (KF7P) had excellent communication with me to confirm exactly what I was looking for and sent the completed cable entry box promptly to me when it was ready. Everything looks very professionally done and I would recommend him to other amateurs without any hesitation. Chris included some candy bars to give me the energy I needed to install this with snow in the air.

Great product and service  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I bought one of the 10 x 10 Small Boxes with several accessories (grommets plugs, interior wall plate cover and conduit install kit) several months ago. Prior to the purchase I sent emails to KF7P with questions and a photo of what I was thinking. Chris sent back great feedback.

I'm extremely pleased with the entry panel. It looks very professional and has high Spouse Acceptance Factor on the side of the house. The material and build quality is excellent. When I put in the order Chris actually called to make sure he knew if there was any specific customization that needed to be done.

The order came as expected and included some candy as a thank you.

Excellent Product  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
KF7P Metalwerks builds an extremely well-built product. The build and materials are to-notch, the powder coating job impeccable. The thick sheet of copper that makes up the single point ground was pre-drilled for my brand of lightning arresters. The box looks great on my house, and presents a very neat and clean appearance while keeping prying hands away from potentially high voltages.

Very highly recommended.

Excellent Product  Time owned: more than 12 months
My Entry Panel/Box has been is service 12+ months. It is an excellent product and is very sturdy/robust for use with LMR600 type cables. Chris was excellent to work with (he took the time to listen to what I was wanting to do with the routing of the cables and the color I wanted). He had mine here in about a week after I placed the order. I plan to order another one for another set of cables I am redoing.
*****Chris, thanks for the great product & service

Very solid, very happy  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I ordered, received and installed one of the KF7P cable entry panels/boxes with Morgan surge arrestors in my new QTH. Chris contacted me after my online order and let me know his schedule for delivery. In about a week, the panel and accessories arrived. The quality was excellent (solidly built) and I am very happy with the purchase, installation and function of the entry panel. All in all, it was a very positive experience. No buyers regret here :-) -- Thanks Chris!

XYL Approved  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Retirement plans include moving to a downsized home. My XYL and I will be sharing a room for our hobbies and aesthetics are very important to her, so I wanted a way to unobtrusively bring feedlines to my operating position. I ran across the KF7P Metalwerks website while searching for a solution and I'm so pleased! Chris was very helpful in selecting the right panel and it's a real winner. Heavy duty construction that should last the rest of my life and the powder coat finish is beautiful. It looks great mounted on the exterior wall and the feedlines will be neatly routed. And of course everything is grounded and protected through arrestors. This panel helps to make the old saying - happy wife, happy life - come true.

Outstanding quality and service!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
We built a new house and the XYL demanded I keep it tidy and neat, with no "unsightly" coax cables hanging about. I scratched my head, then went to Google. I stumbled upon Chris's business, but realized this was the answer.

A few emails later, I had a box on the way. It arrived quickly, well packed, and built like a Sherman tank. I'm serious, these things are tough.

It looks great on the back of the shop, it keeps everything neat, and I have a great lightning protection/ground system to boot.

Highly recommended.

Great product and company  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
After 50 years of hamming I am finally able to put up a tower at the home QTH and want everything *just so*. Of course the entry panel and lightning protection plan was key and Chris has shown that KF7P Metalwerks is the perfect accomplice.

From taking the time to chat on the phone and discuss my overall requirements and ideas to exchanging cable plans and new products via email I could count on Chris to have quick and accurate feedback as we closed on the final design which was fabricated and delivered within 10 days.

Pictures here:

I highly recommend Chris and KF7P Metalwerks and wish there were more companies out there like his.

Happy Ham  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I could easily be a fan boy. Chris' entry panel is superbly designed and executed. Quality work and great service. He answered his phone on a Saturday on a ski trip to take care of a question I had. Followed up the following week to make sure I got the answers I needed.
