Since then, I'm not sure what has happened. No thread replies, no PM replies (though they have all been read). Now, I realize that unlike most other vendors he does not take money up front (which is good, considering his year+ long wait list) it still does not make up for his complete lack of communication.
Now of course he owes us nothing since no money has changed hands, but when you place an order with somebody you really shouldn't have to place the same order multiple times because he somehow loses them. Having no sort of published wait list either means you really have no idea if you're actually on the list or if he has once again lost your order. There's a good reason his thread is full of people asking for a status. It's not so much to know when their thrower will be done (im happy to wait a year or more like others have - the quality of the parts are worth it), but rather to know if they're even on the list at all. We have no way of knowing with the lack of communication.
TL;DR Great product, great guy... but absolutely terrible selling practices. No organization, no communication.
Chris himself is easy to deal with. Straight forward man of few words. Great guy. 'Nuff said.
It came professionally packaged with all parts sealed in plastic.
Its a solid build. Clean welds and straight handles, angles and perfect edges. I'm not afraid of it falling apart with rough handling.
The twist Handel is awesome. I sat there and played with it for a good 20 minutes or so.
All holes are pre drilled and assembly is a breeze. He even labeled some parts you you don't put it together wrong.
I can't wait to start adding electronics and there's definitely enough room x
I thought this was cool.
Also want to note that his shaft collar is the best I've seen. It's so clean cut. The best ive been seen.
This thrower took about a year to get done. It's worth it. Overall I'm extremely happy with it to finally have a particle thrower in my hand is beyond comprehension. I'm finally getting an idea on the size. Last time I've seen a proton pack in person was in universal studios Florida, I was 10 lol. The is going to be a great experience when done.
Thank You So Much!
There is absolutely zero comparison between one of Chris' all aluminum throwers and a resin/scratch built thrower. His craftsmenship is second to none and everything fits together perfectly. Lines, angles, holes, everything is exactly where it should be and beautifully cut. I could not be happier.
Now...price. I shopped metal thrower makers daily for about 3 weeks before deciding to send Chris a PM. Among the folks that make the aluminum throwers, not only does Chris appear to do the best work, but he also has the best pricing. By a substantial amount. I couldn't find anybody making aluminum throwers and thrower parts that could come close to beating him. His shipping was lightning fast and his communication was great and he was really easy to work with about when/how he was shipping my order.
Could not be more pleased with ordering from him and will absolutely be doing so again in the future.

My unboxed parts order...
That being said, the wand kit itself seems to be top quality and I'm glad I ordered from CPU64!
Ordered all the metal parts for my pack from him. I Live local so he also helped me with odd parts I needed as well as some repairs to my shell/mobo. I have to say if your looking for clean work, Chris is your guy. I would say he specialises in precise measuring and welding. He's very good at making sure his metal parts have a clean finish. I would venture to say his parts are almost too perfect for me.. Almost too precise to replicate something as sloppy as proton pack parts... This cat should be designing more precise stuff, like engine parts and such. Give him enough time & metal and I'm sure he could build a car, seriously. I'm not kidding... Anyway y'all have seen his work and talents, just thought I would give credit where credit is due. Nice work my friend, very nice work.
Did you ever find a team?
