Star Machine Works web page
« on: April 23, 2007, 02:50:58 pm »
Does anyone know what happened to the web page for Star Machine Works?  I had it on my "Favorite Places" but can't get it to come up any more.

I don't know, being new to Star machines, how good a source of parts they were.  I see references to various people's names and maybe one of those is the proprietor?

I haven't been able to get a response from them for over a year.  I'm guessing he finally let the website die.

It doesn't load for me.  Try hitting refresh.  You probably have the page saved so you can access if off line.

I've tried "refresh" and I've tried retyping web address in.  What I get is a note that the web site exists but cannot be shown.  Specifically, this is called "HTTP 403 Forbidden."  I'm not computer-savvy enough to know how to get around this.  Anybody been in recent contact by phone or mail?

No one has been able to contact Star for quite some time. I would say that Star is out of business.

Just called their number.  The answering machine is still working.  BUT this guy was never a credit to the star history.  Such a sad ending to such a wonderful company.

Yeah, I wrote him some time ago--no reply.

Hi,

Some time ago I advised I could load & refresh the website....someone suggested I had synchronized it. You were right as when I rechecked I couldn't access the site. Too bad the owner doesn't offer what ever he has plus the rights for sale.

I apologize for for erroneous onfo!

Some time ago, (maybe a year) I offered to buy him out.  No response to that either.
