    LBT Still In Business???

    Greetings,

    Ordered and paid for two moulds a few months ago.

    Checking on the status, I telephoned and emailed to get no response.

    Check has been cashed.

    Has anyone received any LBT products lately? (moulds, grease, etc...)

    Cheers,

    Dave

    Iíve heard this same story for about 5 years or more now. Entry time itís no communication and then finally the mould arrives. Some folks just put their head in the sand and wait, some fret over it. Donít make no difference to Mr Smith it seems.

    Today you just about need to call, to make sure people are still working. I get asked all of the time, my stock answer is call first.

    I bought his 2nd edition of jacket performance with lead bullets 4or 5 years ago sent a check it was cashed no book finally got him to answer a e-mail to which he replied he is still writing the book but when it is finished he would mail it to me , at this point i decided it's only 28 bucks count it as a lost and be glad it's not a 120.00 dollar mould , Now the only LBT moulds I get come from e-bay. wish it were different love his moulds but his customer service is non existent .

    He makes more money making molds than answering phones.

    I called and spoke to his daughter about a month and a half ago and she told me he had broken his hip.

    Flame on ....

    Way back when veral got himself 4 years in prison for tax evasion.
    Had an attitude after he got out an got a month or two more here an there . ....
    Around that time he brought out the crazy and started saying how the government was attacking him with microwave radiation and all sorts of other off the wall stuff .

    I decided that even though the man seems to know about cast bullets and everyone said he made good molds I wouldn't be doing business with him , mostly because of the crazy paranoid comments and partly with the known felon aspect and firearms ....

    Hope you folks get what you paid for or your money back .....

    Last mold I ordered from LBT was in 2017, actually 2x 4 cavity molds. They arrived before the check had been cashed. I called to make sure he had the check and offered to send another if he lost the first one.

    I find his molds cast fantastically right out of the box. I hope Veral can recover from his hip break and get back to business.

    ive bought from him once and never again.he cashed my check for a mould and it was 6 months before i recieved it.Phone calls and emails didnt make any difference. IMO he is the worst when it comes to anyone in the mould business. He doesnt deserve anyones business. That experience ruined me for anything LBT.Now knowing he has been in prison makes sense,

    Veral sold me a hardness tester. He and I had a polite, respectful, prompt and informative exchange of a few emails on the niceties of fine tuning it.

    Iíll grant, though, that it was something like five years ago and came out of stock on hand, not like a custom ordered mold.
