    Hello,

    Has anyone ordered motors through Miller Motor Works of Jackson, MI? I initially contacted Scott through the web page, and got a reply, but my messages since then have bounced with "mailbox full" errors.

    Thanks,

    Not lately. He was always more of an onsite club supplier at the field. Not really a mail order guy. CTI only, maybe Loki.

    Thanks for the input, which fields does he show up at? I'll be driving through Michigan in July, and figured I may be able to pick something up.

    Hi Marten,
    That's one of the problems with the internet. Easy to set-up a shop online, much harder to maintain an accurate updated inventory and price list, etc.

    http://sfsmindustries.com/MMW/

    I think the website might be very out of date. It appears some of the pages have not been updated in 15 years!!! - seems to have lots of CTI motors listed as available - at exceptionally good prices.

    It looks like the website allows you to order without clicking the "on-field-delivery" option. It allows you to enter a delivery address - and it charges your pay-pal account.

    Thanks for the responses, everyone. I'm always looking for opportunities to pick up motors, and launch at new fields. Especially when traveling.

    Yes, I'm sure that is true. I won't fault a home run business for having an out of date inventory, I'm sure it is hard enough retailing rocket motors. A lot of small vendors seem to be having a hard time getting CTI motors right now, so I was particularly interested in what looks like a large inventory. But I wanted to confirm and see what he actually has available first.

    I won't be in Michigan yet for the July 13th launch, but perhaps our paths will cross. I get to Michigan a few times a year.
