"My wife has recently had the good fortune of purchasing one of your Traveller (single drive) wheels along with a pair of carders via mail order from a UK agent. Upon arrival of the flat packed box I was given the task of assembly etc... Of which I initially thought was going to be a laborious & thankless task, how wrong I was..... I was simply amazed at the quality & attention to detail of your product from the timber & hardware right down to the excellent step by step instruction guide, everything about it was absolutely perfect. I felt I must write this quick note to thank your company & all your staff for producing such excellent products especially in an age where profit usually comes before quality. Please pass this message of thanks onto all your employees from a very happy customer on the opposite side of the world, and I look forward to hopefully assembling more of your products in the future".
