Greetings, First, I want to stress that the purpose of this post is not to besmirch the name or reputation of Precision Pipe Repair. It is simply an attempt to gather information and advice. In March of 2010 I sent 3 pipes to George at Precision Pipe Repair for refurbishing and some stem work. Nearly a year later I don't have my pipes back nor do I have any idea of their status. I sent George a couple of emails last summer and finally called him in August looking for an update. In all cases I was told it would be about six weeks as he was incredibly busy. Apparently getting the Greg Pease seal of approval will lead to an avalanche of work. Recently I've left him a voicemail and sent an email and am waiting on a response. The pipes I sent aren't super valuable in terms of dollars. One is a Cavicchi, one a Savinelli and the third is a Hardcastle. So I can understand why my pipes might get pushed back in the order if he has other more prestigious pipes to repair or if he has repairs that would be more profitable for him to work on than mine. Do any of you have any experience with Precision Pipe Repair? Is this kind of wait normal? At this point I would just like to get my pipes back and locate a different repair shop. Can you make any recommendations? Thanks!
