    I tried KHB Photographix website. Got some weird generic site. I had heard from a friend that KHB was changing locations. Does anyone know what the status is? Kevin Brown helped me out more than once. Excellent repair services, has a lot of hard to find items. Hoping that this is a temporary computer issue.
    Best Regards Mike

    Sure does look like the website is down - the domain name has not been renewed. Pity that. Kevin Brown also helped me out a while back. I have bought stuff from the eBay store in the past too but I can't seem to find that either on said website. Perhaps they ARE in the process of relocating and will be back in the saddle soon. I sure do hope so for the sake of my Beseler 23C!!!
    cheers!

    I linked to KHB's slightly revised website a couple of days ago and noted the new address and an improvement in the layout.
    Maybe, in all the confusion that surrounds any move, they forgot to renew their domain name.
    I believe they are now in Welland Ontario.

    Kevin helped me with an obscure switch for one of my control boxes on an enlarger. I am glad to hear it's glitch.

    A physical move and the expiration of a domain name are not related. Coincidental, perhaps, but no cause/effect relationship. Unless, as one suggested, in the move, he just forgot to renew.

    I would be lost without KHB. Remarkable service.

    Just looked - website is back up. :smile:

    I've done business with them too - a great resource.

    Just checked. That's a relief.
