Yes, I bought an enlarger lens that needed a rare-ish lapla lensholder for my Lab 1000. He didn't have one, but ended up having some made, mine included. The machinist screwed up and put the wrong size thread in, I returned it and the replacement is on the way. He has been good to deal with throughout, and at one point even offered to loan me a lens that would fit a lensholder he did have in stock while mine was being made. I already had another lens and lensholder that would work together, so didn't need to take him up on his offer.
He told me that he spends 200 days a year on the road, servicing and installing Durst equipment, but he has never failed to return my calls and has kept me up-to-date on the status of the lensholder. I was impressed, especially considering that this is a pretty small and inexpensive piece of gear.
Thanks Johnny....by the way, have you ever had "The Blue"...had some in Chile a few years back....very smooth blended Scotch, but more expensive then some of my enlarging lenses...I'll give Mr. Jensen a ring about a few things.
Nope, Blue came out after I found I had exceeded my lifetime limit of Scotch.
Actually, an interesting story. I had never had that scotch, and without a thought I ordered one dram. When the price came I almost fell over....asked if they had made an error....answer was "no" of course....a valuable lesson to ask the price before ordering...I must have been carried away by the view from the mountain in the center of Santiago de Chile!
I'm glad Jensen came through for you, this was not my experience. Without going into too many details, I just want to say that I placed a very significant order with Jensen and the lack of communication, delays, and outright fabrications (lies?) was astounding. It took almost a year to receive items that I initially thought were in stock. I never did receive part of my order and had to make some parts myself. I will never buy from him again and urge others to use great caution. He is very knowledgeable though....
