You guys must be on the Steadicam Royalty Roster because what the three of you are reporting is 180 degs opposite of my experience and they'll never get another chance to make another first impression with me or my money.

I had both, very good experiences as well as very poor ones. I guess it depends on there work load and the day you come in. Usually they are good if you make an appointment and show up with very concrete ideas and detailed sketches or even better drawings... and can leave the equipment for a couple of days. In some instances I had it made over night. And very nicely made at that.
I had an instance where I had to keep coming back with a case over and over again and at one point had to build a 1:1 scale model from foam board... The guys are no engineers and have not really a gasp at what they are building, at least it seams that way sometimes.
Sorry you had a bad experience.
But you found an alternative that worked even better for you.
