I've noticed a number of recommendations in the past for AGLEVTECH, who sells tungstens and other TIG supplies on eBay and through a website. For those of you who have dealt with him, have you had any problems with lack of communication? The reason I ask is that I sent an email to the address on his website, asking a couple of simple questions (do you have a phone? do you accept phone orders?). After nearly a week, I have not received a response. Even though the guy has a good selection and reasonable prices, I'm leery: if he doesn't respond to a potential new customer, what are the odds he'll respond after he has my money if there's a problem with my order?
The follow-up question is: are there other mail-order or e-business firms you recommend for TIG supplies? (My local welding supply shops don't seem to offer much.)
