In an older thread on AVS members noted James was quoting customers 2 weeks for delivery from time of order but was taking more than two months and was not communicating very responsively, and the excuses he gave for running late were someone in the hospital, someone sick, someone died. Now several of us have had that experience again the past few months.
I worked with James on a custom screen with multiple masking panels, paid him $1,087 in advance, and gave him final specs on October 9, and he quoted "2 to 4 weeks" to completion. After many attempts to get a status update and him giving me various family medical related excuses for the delay, finally I was able to get him to commit to a day for pickup after 10 weeks, but when I made the 670-mile roundtrip drive from Ohio to the Dayton TN Walmart where he insisted on meeting, he *did not* have my masking panels - he claimed his brother-in-law made them but said there were 'flaws' in the velvet and he would have to redo them the following day, and he promised to ship them to me at his expense.
