I was sold a defective screw terminal headlight switch with no “as is” or “not tested” warning.
Contacted the seller twice by email asking for rectification and received no response whatsoever.

Update: Miscommunication through email; Matt cheerfully refunded purchase price. Recommend whole-heartedly!

i did not end up purchasing the rings from matt, but he did take the time to take some measurements for me. so the least i can do is leave him some positive feed back.
thanks Matt, appreciate your time & help

Thanks for the reimbursement Matt!
It’s too late for me to change my initial message— I will contact admin to see what they can do.

We buy correct German cores from Matt now and then. He's one of the "good ones" in our great hobby. Knowledgeable, personable, and fun to do business with.

Very Happy

I bought a Type 3 speedometer from Matt. It arrived very quickly, packaged very well, excellent price, and was in better condition then I expected. Thanks again.
