The Chair Project Fails
If you found this post because you are considering hiring Dave LaRoche of Newark, California for your injection molding plastic project take my advice and don't.
While he is a nice guy with the equipment and expertise to do the job he's not reliable at all. After countless emails pushing to get paid he became impossible to get a hold of after that. He came up with a series of pathetic excuses why he couldn't do the job, from sickness, to lost parts, to several 'buddies' that he need to borrow stuff from, to his shop having to move entirely in a landlord dispute. Worst of all, he complained that the price he bid was too low, effectively taking my money and then refusing to do the job because it wasn't enough.
I'll be contacting my pre-order customers individually about their refunds. Thanks.
