    Cuff links from spare brass - what ever happened?

    Does anyone remember some threads such as this one at the beginning of the year, asking for spare brass in exchange for some cuff links?

    .338 .243 .375 cases

    There were other similar threads asking for .410 cases, etc.

    I sent a pretty full package of .243 and .25-06 brass off, had an email saying thanks and that the cuff links would be sent that week, and then.....nothing. I sent a couple of PM's asking for an update but still.....nothing. I forget about it for a few weeks and then I review my PM's and think "what ever happened there"?

    Out of interest, did anyone ever hear anything back?

    I see the member involved hasn't been back since January, so I'm hoping it was just an oversight on their part and they haven't met with any unforeseen circumstances.

    I have found everyone on this site, honest & decent people & help each other out.
    So when the request came through I sent off a load as well, that evening
    Like you I waited for a while before contacting him & he stated he had been away at work & was now just polishing them up.
    STILL nothing
    If its the same person I looked at his Facebook site "the cartridge man", sent him a message & he had lost my address & my cufflinks "had been sitting around waiting to be posted".
    Surprise Surprise - they still haven't arrived
    Might be time to leave a snotagram on his Facebook page

    I bought some off a guy on here. No problems .They are great, look good and a fun item to wear. Surprised he doesn't still sell them.

    I sent some .243 brass to him and received a pair within a week, he did also promise a tie pin that didn't arrive, but im not that bothered as I rarely wear ties. The cufflinks are very well made.

    I had a set made with some cases from a friends .505 Gibbs by Griffshrek as a present for him, lovely things they are.

    .505 Gibbs ...that should give him some exercise when wearing those

    I had a set from griffshrek too, excellent work.
    Are you still doing them Neil?

    1st thanks for the kind words about the cufflinks , yes I will be doing more soon ...but due to being very busy I haven't offered any for sale as i just haven't had the time .

    The person asking for cases then not sending them Is not me .

    Regards....Neil

    Apologies - I hadn't realised there was more than the one person on the site making cufflinks

    More than happy to make it clear that the person who asked for brass and then disappeared is most definitely NOT griffshrek. It was a user named Kirriegreg

    From the posts and PM's I've received, it seems like I was not the only one who sent off brass and then heard no more Maybe if he comes back to the site he might feel inclined to get in touch.
