    I know the site is still up but the owner isn't answering emails, so I just wanted to know if the guy is ok, or if he's on vacation or something.

    I ordered a belt drive kit & bearings on 5/6/16. I got worried about my kit so I emailed and got no response. I stopped pay through Paypal & I got a email the next day from BTP. I didn't notice that kits were backordered 1.75 - 2 months after the order date. So I'm waiting on my kit. I was told it would ship on 7/24 Monday. We shall see. The only problem with ordering this way is Paypal only backs transactions within 45 days? So the buyer is left hung out. Scott give me his word, so time will tell. I'll keep you posted.

    He builds great products and stands behind them. Probably got some new items about to be released.

    I got an email back from Scott saying June has been rather busy so he hopes to get everything out on time. As far as delivery I think there is a blog post saying that from then on all belt drive kits are done on a pre-order basis because he needed to get stuff produced in batches to meet demand.

    You should use paypal credit for stuff like this, because it allows disputes for about 6 months.

    I do hope that there's a way to get increased pulley ratio with the belt drive kit, because the speed it offers is way too fast for machining steel.

    I just sent my G0704 column to him for the liner rail conversion. It took him a day or two to return the email.

    I'm sure he will return your email but in might take a few days.

    His site says he is expecting shipment august 31st. on the G0704 belt drive kit.

    When I ordered it the shipping date was July 31st. I think it's on a rolling date, month to month...

    Just one question... I got the new zealand belt drive conversion, and I have trouble drilling or machining 4140HT because the spindle is too fast and at a low spindle speed, the motor would stall trying to drill any hole larger than 1/4". Does BTP's version solve this problem? This is one reason why I spent the money on BTP because being stuck on a fast speed sucks when you are machining steel.

    I had the same kit and same problem.
    And now stepped up the btp kit.

    It is beautifully machined and perfect fit.

    Has anyone received the kit for the July batch? I haven't gotten any shipping confirmation or anything for mine and the owner is quiet as usual. Do you think they are having problems, perhaps personal?

    I'm going to file a paypal dispute if I see nothing in a week...
