    F*#!ing Maplin Electronics - TC Modules Update 10/12/03

    For the attention of everyone who asked for a total closure module at the Rolling Road day next Saturday. Maplin Electronics have screwed my order up big style and basically some dickhead manager cancelled it at the warehouse.

    I have all the relays and boxes I need for the job but they cancelled the order for the electronics bits which make them work

    I got phoned up yesterday and was told that they had my stuff in, went down today and had a stand up argument with them when I found out half the stuff is missing. So basically, the order MAY arrive next Friday, which is too close to the RR day to make up anything.

    All I can ask is that those that wanted these bring cheques to the RR day and I send the kits out when they are made up. I've already worked out postage and packing costs for the guys who couldn't make it on the day and it is £2, bring the total up to £27.

    Sorry for the hassle, but it was not my f**k up

    Steve, i don'k know if this will help you.

    visit http://www.rapidelectronics.co.uk/

    I've used them to order bits for my latest mod (in time for next Saturday). I've found them very good. One or two days delivery!

    And they've just done a blinder, i soldered up 8 LED's only to find 3 where "Dead On Arrival". NO QUIBBLES 3 more sent out today.

    not sure if you're still stuck or whatever, but i used to work at Maplin electronics and yeah, the warehouse manager / store managers are all a bunch or amatures.
    anywho... if you still need parts, i still have a few contacts on the "inside" and can get anything from maplin electronics at a discount and generally as a priority overnight sorta deal. Let me know if you want me to have a word for you.

    Thanks for the offer mate, but I made them check the warehouse stocks today and the bits I need are currently out of stock (they were in stock, but have gone out to stores because no one ordered them (I did, but it was cancelled))

    I had a quick look at Rapid Electronics, they don't have all the stuff I need so I might as well hang on for the Maplins order to come through now :roll:

    Latest update:

    Maplins are taking the piss yet again.

    Date for delivery of the boards and other parts is now the 12th January. Apparently there are no stocks in the warehouse or at their suppliers
