I think it would be great fun to visit the Simpson's works. However, I am reminded of that famous bit of advice: "Never visit the kitchen of your favorite restaurant." :wink:

Hi Guys,

As far as I know, there is an office and a rural factory in Somerset. ( read your small leaflet that comes with every Simpsons)

Unit 9, Larchfield Estate,
Dowlish Ford, Ilminster,
Somerset TA 19 OPF England

Oriel House , Tabram's Pitch
Nailsworth, Stroud Gloucestershire
GL6 0BS England

The first is the factory's address and the second is the office's.
According to Mr Carter of Simpsons, it is about 50 ( miles/km ?????) away.

Oriel House, thats where Mr Carter usually works. How often he visits the rural factory in Somerset , I am not sure.


So, if any UK member is near Somerset, pay the factory a visit and let us know.


Regards,
Jason

Take your spy camera as well. Get some pics of the outside and the super secret facility. Maybe they have a huge brush similar to the huge razor that sits outside of Feather. :shock: If you snap a pic of a brush that size outside, I can say with a fairly high degree of certainty that DrP will be on a jet and will skydive to the location and attempt to buy it on the spot. :wink: That would be worth using your camera phone and posting the pic via the phone as well. You post it and inside of 30 minutes DrP drops from the sky! :lol:

Now we know where the factory is, couldn't a group of like minded individuals meet outside after the staff had gone home for the night and...
well, the rest is self explanatory :twisted:

Get it home, then email Mr. Carter for a replacement decal. Should be about 1 meter large. Then give your sympathies to the recent break in that you heard about. He won't be suspicious at all. :shock:

bernards66 wrote:Brian, I agree. I don't think that's it's unreasonable or questionable for Simpson to request the defective brush back. They are going to replace it, and that's all you can ask. And, if I read the above correspondence correctly, all the customer has to do IS return it to Lee, and not pay international shipping, if he doesn't chose to. It's very fair, IMO.
Regards,
Gordon
My thoughts entirely; it did say that the brush can be returned to Lee. I think their service and the letter was very polite and courteous and more than a lot of company's would do under the circumstance. I love my Simpsons Duke 3 and think its the best brush i have in terms of overall quality of the product.
I can see how some folk might be a little troubled by the need to return it however; differences of opinion, which is cool. Wish more of the world would accept differences of opinion, but that's another topic for another forum. :)

Funny timing last night when 'Antiques Roadshow' on PBS featured Stroud last night.

Hi all,

Long time no post -- I had a similar problem with a T3. I returned it to Lee, who returned it to Simpson's, who then made me another (perfect) brush and shipped it straight out. Now I'm the proud owner of a 5-metre tall Tulip 3 and I absolutely love it. I use our pool as a scuttle. What a lather!

best,


k

I hope Simpson's doesn't get firebombed by some ALF/PETA loony now.

Why would they care if we're interested in Badgers?


PETA is the reason that I still believe in euthanasia for undesirable entities in our culture.
