Apologies for having nothing to list; I wanted to comment on the original thread, but it's closed.

I just received a Kline U12 that Johnie King had listed for sale. I'd never dealt with Johnie, and like any first time deal (especially involving thousands), I was a tad apprehensive.
I needn't have been.

Johnie was completely upfront on everything, packed the steel to survive a bomb, sent it to Joe Kline as requested (Joe did some fine work for me. Again.), and kept me posted every step of the way. The crate Johnie built to encase the steel was used to send the steel back to me from Joe, and can be used yet again.

This is simply to say that I would not hesitate to deal with Johnie again, and I want to publicly thank him for his fine service.

I agree, Johnie is a up front guy. You can believe what he says, and he can pack a steel like no other!

Glad to see my original post garnered so many positive comments.
Since we're all hidden behind computer or phone screens, I think it's good to let others know who's honest (Johnie) and who isn't (that guy who isn't around here anymore).

Sue also made me a nice cover, as the original went missing somewhere along the line.
