I am still waiting after 15 months from ordering for the tubes I never received. I did receive what you called "loaner" glued tubes in May 2014 after a promised delivery of December 2013. I would appreciate the new, welded tubes I ordered. I believe that if you truly desire to please your customers, you can make a concerted effort here, please. You have all my contact information, both web and phone here in beautiful Canby Oregon, and Oregon City.
