Default Powerbond 806

Does anyone know of issues with supply of this? I ordered a three pack of it last Tuesday, and despite an email (which hasn't been replied to) I have not received anything. They state their postal days on the website, so I kinda expected them by now. There isn't a 'phone number, so I am at a loss.

Tl;dr Should I go thermonuclear with a paypal claim, or wait it out?

Kind regards,
Peep

It will depend on what they said about delivery times. Given the current weather, they'll probably use it as an excuse. I'd start investigating PayPal dispute systems though so you're prepared when the time comes (if it does.)

Who did you buy it from. It’s £10 for three on their web site and £9-50 for four on ebay.

Chinese New Year, ?
Many items and post have been delayed for the last 7 or 8 weeks, because China factories close for the New Year, Ships don't sail, ask Bachmann who have had nothing recently..

Is it Chinese? In that case you could be right.

Thanks for your replies, gentlemen. The specific site is powerbondglue.com. This was the only one I could find that had the 806 variety of powerbond, as recommended by a very respected member of this site.
3 x 20g glues +1 x 20g glue remover for £20. It seems I may have purchased incorrectly.
Oh dear.

Thank you all ever so much for your replies.

edit for correction 'powerbondglue.com'

Always worth checking ebay or Amazon in my view. When I googled the glue ebay came up first.

Still cheaper to buy two ebay packs, thatís assuming you donít need the glue remover.

Duly ordered, thanks, chaps. I should've asked here first! I'll give the other lot a week and stick in a claim, then. That would be fair, I think.

Thanks again,
Peep Peep!
