I finally got to speak with the great Ron Scobie today and let me assure I will never speak with him again. After calling him about an order I asked about earlier and never got a response on, I needed other items listed on his website. I emailed about that and never heard back so I called this morning. When he found out I purchased a cylinder from someone else, he said just get the handle from them too and hung up on me. I called back and kindly said, "we must have been cut off". He then told me "no, I was through and hung up. I have 50 orders ahead of you" and hung up on me again. Im writing this just to tell others of my experience with this so called "petro legend". Let me assure you Mr Scobie, I will never bother you again. My suggestion to you to is to either hire some help if you are that busy, or get out of the business. I have never been treated so rudely and I promise you this, Mr Legend, if you ever saw me in person, Im most certain that you wouldnt speak to me in the tone that you did on the phone this morning nor would you choose to be such an ***** to me to my face. Hanging up on me would not be an option. For someone who relies on other peoples money (customers) for his products, you would think one would treat people with the same dignity and respect that they would want to be treated with. Thank you Mr Legend for showing me what you are all about. There are too many kind, respectful people out there willing to help each other out. Those are the ones I choose to give my money and time to. Thanks to all the other good folks out there Ive had the pleasure to deal with thus far and will do so again in the future. Mr Scobie, you will never see a dime from me. Rant over. Everyone please have a great week!

I agree. Had the same experience with him a few years back. If someone else doesn't have it, I don't need it...

Not trying to bash the guy, just saying there is no need for someone to talk to or treat others the way he did me. Im getting plenty of feedback on him though. Most people seem to be concerned about getting black listed or having their account deleted for talking about their dealings with him, but yet they agree with me. Its all good. Im sure my thread will somehow get deleted. If I cant find what I need out there, I'll just make it. Thanks for the feedback

Exactly Dave. That is precisely an excuse. Treat EVERYONE with dignity and respect. You may be walking through hell.....but so might the person you are dealing with as well

Just got a nice little phone call from an old gas guy that took the time to bash Dick Bennett.. He has been gone two years. I guess he thought he would hurt me. Nice try Neil

I quit dealing with him years ago for the same reasons. He can be a great guy, when he needs to borrow something from you. Always thought he was bipolar.

I got no time for people that can't treat you with respect. No time for backstabbers either.

Ok now this is not the place to start bashing Ron!
If anyone has had a bad deal then you just starting making your own parts and find out how fun it is. Go have someone else do it or just go buy a new one (lol). I know many people in this HOBBY and its a lot more FUN, if we don't start trashing people on here.
For the sake of the keyboard cowboys stop beating this horse. We all have bad days! Best of luck with your search for you parts

People praise others for great jobs or deeds done, there is nothing wrong with letting people know about bad deals also.

I will also add that I am blacklisted from him also because I bought parts from Past Gas and recommended them to someone else.

Its his loss not mine.

ARW, with all do respect the initial thread was not thrashing Ron. More just venting a bad experience. Go chill out dude.


Have gas all the time

Hey Fellas.. Spoke with Ron through email today.. I had originally sent him an email list of parts I would like to order for my Fry17 and he said he was waiting on the conduit and handles. I checked back with him through email yesterday and he said he would not be able to fill any orders at this time.

I also posed two questions in the original email about a couple of the parts. 1. 2 X Tank Floats ( Would like to have the float system.. Are these all I need??)
2. Cast Iron "Guarantee Liquid Measure" Door (Will this fit a Non-Cast Iron pump??)

I replied back and said, Yes, Sir.. and asked him if he would please answer the two questions in the original email.
to which I got a blank email reply.. Not sure what this means..
Maybe to screw off??

Just trying to support the guy.. Hope all is well with him
Hey Ron.. If you read this will you please answer my 2 questions?

Thanks
Jeremy Smith
