Made from scratch and this buy is for the tap for the sharpie refill. As seen in this thread.

Hey, I don't mean to be a crap disturber, but is this from the same company that did the recent tap and die group buy for us?

Because if it is, look at that thread and notice 2 things...

First of all that company (I don't know who it was, I didn't organize it, just bought), messed up the coating on them.

Secondly, they haven't made it right yet. It's been ample time for them to step up and make it right, but it seems like we're getting the run around.

I do not think anyone here on the IAP wants to give MORE business to a company that doesn't do the right thing when given ample opportunity.

Please, forgive me if this is out of line, but I am just like you... when I pay for something I just want to get what I asked for and I don't want to see more of our community burned. There's plenty of competition out there that cares!

I have had several phone calls on that very subject with a few members who were in that buy and I also have bought several things from Tapco in the past, long before I was making pens. I do not know nor can I tell what is going on with those problems however an update on that would be nice.

I do know for a fact that all treatment is outsourced to a 3rd party company and it is *NOT* done in house, I know this because I ask the company. Tapco taps is a rather small company of about 10 people and been in business since 1969.

I seriously doubt that anyone is going to get burned.

I also would have to encourage everyone to have more open communication in group buys.

I agree that open communication is best. We do appreciate your input as well. You were a strong proponent for the Ti coating, which I am sure influenced some of us to spend the additional money.

Frankly, if I sent out a product and found out it was faulty on my behalf, I would not make it difficult to do right. To me, it seemed simple the company delivers the product you paid for or repairs it at no added cost to the consumers.

I'm still awaiting the resolution, as are others from the prior tap/die group buy.

I still stand behind the benefits of having Ti treating performed. It is sound and just, however, I did not like the flaws that were posted and yes they should have been inspected before being shipped out.

Perhaps this group buy (small count) can learn from the other mistakes and perhaps The Penguin can ask Jackie if they would be so kind and inspect every one of the treated units before shipping to us. That way they can take care of any problems before The Penguin gets the shipment.
