    Beautiful, I'm glad you were able to get that adjustment wheel broke loose, Looks great can't wait to see it on your wall

    What's your plan for the wood platform ? Were you able to get the height adjustment gears working ?

    Consider yourself lucky, The seller finally got back to me, Right after he posted it on ebay he went away on a military stint for four weeks, he apologized to me, He said after he got back he saw all my emails, I offered him 1000 bucks in the emails I sent right when I saw the Dutchman post it here, You got that for a steal, There's not to many of those left out there, Hope you appreciate what you got.

    The swivel is a later addition, D&M Lucky Dog adjustable chain swivel. Wood looks immaculate.

    Got it.
    Unbelievable shape.
    Height adjustment is stuck but it has been sitting for a while.
    I am sure it just needs a little work.
    Came from a gym on State Street in Chicago.

    Guys, eBay's process is simple. Let them know you didn't receive the item and they will check with buyer and then return your payment. eBay is setup to protect the buyer and puts all the risk on the seller. Plus you can use your credit card which offers another layer of protection.
    If the item were a Rolex I could understand, but a NMC Speed bag platform? I have been hitting the speed bag for 40 years and I never heard of this until a few weeks ago when I stumbled upon this forum. This would be a very unusual choice of scam bate. Either way I contacted eBay and should have my money soon. The outcome is I spent my time waiting for a reply to build my own drum which I will attach to a Balazs SBP-12. Not as cool as the NMC but pretty close.

    I'm not sure what eBay's process is for cancelling a sale, either he had second thoughts about selling it, or selling it for what he was asking, The other is that it wasn't his to sell in the first place. He may be stalking the board too.

    The guy probably saw my asking price for my (well-documented) NMC and rethought his own asking price???

    Still no contact. I asked bay
    to reach out and see if they can contact him.
    I know the area well, might take a drive and see if I can locate his house. Then just knock on the door!
    In the meantime I am working on a new drum.

    The one time I got cheated on eBay the seller had already moved some of their money so I only got a partial refund from eBay/PayPal.

    Well today makes 1 week since I hit the purchase now button to buy the platform. Radio silence from the seller. I know e-bay will refund my money, however I want the platform. I will stay the course until Monday. When I will have to order a Balazs Pro w/ 12" of adjustment and make my own drum. Stay tuned. I really hope this is an issue of a new ebay user who has better things to do and he makes contact soon!
    The photo is the piece of wood I have for the drum. It is 2" thick and 30"x60". Figure I can double up and have a 30" drum 4" thick!
