I visited Ski last Friday at his shop and he is well and good. But the size of his shop is smaller by at least two thirds, walled off. I didn't ask the reason anyhow his utilities had to be shifted over to the new occupants next store. I usually communicate by E-mail with ski to coordinate parts and pickups like I did last week. So maybe he doesn't know his phone service is out of order and he is closed on Mondays anyway. I will E-mail your posting to his to let him know:foilhead:

I've spoken with him since too. I was calling from work and think it had something to do with in-house com system. I haven't been able to get up there.

There was nothing wrong with Ski's phone system.
