Ok, I am happy to report that my part is on its way. Mr. Wisner did not charge me until he shipped the part and I got progress reports almost every 8 hours.
Did it take some proding and bitching? Yes it did, but as I see it in the past there were promises made that were never fullfilled. In my case after the initial months of wait I actually got the part put together and shipped in 4 days (and this was over the Thanksgiving weekend!). If Mr. WIsner manages to reduce his response time a little bit and continues to do as he did with me, e.i. Not charge until shipping, send tracking number, and actually keep the customer informed, I am willing to bet we might see Wisner cameras on the come back.
IMO this is good news, the cameras are reasonably priced, great to look at, and when they work, they work very well. The other big complaint about the cameras was lack of quality control, well if he has managed to get a handle on this as well (and judging from the pictures he sent to me of his new workshop, it seem he plans on reducing production and paying more care to small details) I think the results will be beneficial to all of those who love LF.
Anyhow, I thought I would let you all know how this tale ended. I think this is good news!
