    That's a shame he is a really nice guy and does some nice work at good prices.

    No way :( I've got some of Jon's stuff. All the best to him. I hope he makes things again one day.

    Really? No way... he's done anodising for me before, and he's just brilliant to deal with. I had some mounts done in bronze, and he wasn't sure about the colour. I asked for them anyway, to see what they were like. When I got them, they weren't quite right, and he redid them for me. No worries there. But, when he returned them to me the second time, he even included a fiver to cover me having to post them back to him. Totally unexpected. It's a real shame to see guys like this close down. :(

    Agreed, a shame, I've had a couple of custom bits made by him and he couldn't have been more helpful.
