Default Jan Ridder vacuum engines...no reply

Out of curiosity has anyone had problems recieving plans from his site?
I sent an email a few weeks ago and still have not heard anything back. I am hesitant to send more email messages as I do not know if there might be a family problem or he does not want to send them out.
Does anyone have any insight on this?
I am looking for his 1-cylinder design and the miniature vacuum design.
Thanks,
Jon

I sent him an email about 4-5 weeks ago asking for plans and I heard back within a couple of days. He was very gracious and helpful. That is all I can offer.

Good Luck.

Paul

Hello,

I requested two plans four days ago and had them within 48 hours. Your email may have gone astray - send another.

Best,
Mike

Jan normally responds very promptly. Have you ensured that your email inbox isn't full?

I requested plans for the Bas engine before Christmas and received them very promptly (next morning as I recall) together with advice on building the engine.

I have requested plans twice. Both times Jan was prompt in his response, and gracious in his offered advice. A real gentleman.

I did get an email back from him with plans this time. Don't know what happened. I guess somewhere in the dusty corners of the internet my email is sitting in a broken pile of 0's and 1's.
Thanks all for your replies
