I recently emailed him. He is not taking orders. The platforms he makes will be sold in the classified section on a first come first serve basis. Doing a search in the classifieds shows he has sold 4 this way over the last few months. At least he is making them.

I went with a Gregg Blandin platform and am awaiting it now. Here is a thread about them. I got to talk with Gregg at length and really enjoyed hearing about his product and getting to know him. Great guy, great reviews, great platform. Check them out.

right-on i'll look into greggs platform. i know about atomics platform through his website, but alas no contact info, i suppose its on purpose so he doesnt take orders and builds them on his time, thats cool, i dont need it now but i'd sure like to know when one is for sale instead of sitting by my computer 24/7 waiting for him to post one up.

I just came back in from using my blandin platform, it always works. I am very happy with it. And it is carrying a 17.5 Splitube Discovery Dob. Bumping 200 lb's.
