Heating Mantles

Hi Guys, just looking for recommendations for heating mantles. We have some ceramic type ones, they have been here longer than me, over ten years and when used constantly trip the power. From my understanding this is due to the ceramic absorbing moisture over time and then when plugged in for use ca...

Re: MTA products going downhill fast?

I am disappointed with the service at MTA. I have sent multiple emails to seek assistance to 3 different people (our assigned sales support person, technical person and general sales enquiry) over a period of a month and have as yet to hear from any of them.

Re: MTA products going downhill fast?

Thing is, I didn't think I was buying cheap, I was buying what I saw in the catalogue which matched my previous purchase. What they provided was different which is almost deception, how many people would just accept it and not complain about being sent a cheaper inferior product? Not good business p...

Re: MTA products going downhill fast?

Yes agree with the login! The waste of my time is what annoys me the most, and that I have to justify why I'm returning and why I shouldn't have to pay postage! Thing is the invoice hasn't been paid, and I wont pay for the other items until they sort this out. I stopped buying a lot of stuff from Se...
