Re: Missing in action

I will certainly resend Sebastian the €40 if it ever shows up; I have had a fantastic experience with Sell My Retro and people selling on it, and I greatly appreciate everyone's efforts. I very much regret and feel really bad about having to do it, and hope Sebastian is well, but unfortunately I did...

Re: Missing in action

3 month mark passed, tried messaging couple more times, and still no response. Really hated to do it, but with no word, had to put in a non‐receipt of goods claim with PayPal Friday which he appear to have agreed to refund today. Hope all is well with the gent.

I think this is him on this forum.

Yes, I've messaged him through both sellmyretro.com and directly to his contact email from PayPal. If that's Sebastian's account here, apparently he hasn't logged in here since Febuary, but I'll try that too.

Re: Missing in action

It's not the delay I'm finding as concerning, that was expected, as is that I haven't been able to get ahold of the gent since the beginning of April. Under normal circumstances, if I haven't gotten tracking after 30 days I have to file a non-receipt of goods claim with PayPal. PayPal is extending t...

Missing in action

Sorry, but I though I'd pass this by the Community for some guidance. I purchased a ZX1541 from Sebastian Kotek/tdididit on SellMyRetro.com back in March, I was able to get a response from him a couple weeks later to ask if he shipped it, but it's been 2 1/2 months, it hasn't arrived, there's no tra...

Re: Making Keyboard Membranes

It stared out as a conversation about replacing TRS80 CoCo membranes, and then branched into other old machines like the Mattel Aquarius. I'm not sure there's a huge demand, as someone had looked into it and was saying he couldn't offer them for less the $60 USD. I did run into one low cost alternat...

Re: Making Keyboard Membranes

I was actually looking to see if anyone had any information about, or experience with, making membranes... I have a number of retro machines for which no one's producing replacements, so I'm doing some research to see how feasible it would be to do runs of them.

Making Keyboard Membranes

I'm looking to make some keyboard membranes similar to the replacement that are available for the ZX 81's Spectrums. Does anyone have any advice, or the name of a good company to consider?

Shipping from the UK to the US

I wasn't sure where to ask this, so this ares looked close. Bit of an odd question, but I've bought a number of things from member of the forum in the past so I figured someone might know. Of those of you in the UK that have used Royal Mail to shipped items to US Postal Service Boxes, have you ever ...
