View Full Version : Info: New Rio Rondo Etched Parts

Hi everyone,
Ok, it's not a new resin, but it's fresh art and fresh cool stuff...

In case you haven't heard, Rio Rondo has switched etching vendors and the new stuff is wonderful!

To illustrate that, here's part of a shot I took of the halter plate sheet:


It took a bit of work to cleanly show the parts instead of the shine - that's nickel plated, of course.

I know that plenty of people want stuff in gold, and we'll get it, but it will take a little while.

More info on all of it can be found at www.riorondo.com/info/etchingnews.html (http://www.riorondo.com/info/etchingnews.html)

Some things are being discontinued, and there are a number of new things, you'll just have to go look.

We posted on our yahoo newslist, but it seems that yahoo and google are having some sort of snit - and for that matter, many of our customers with gmail accounts aren't getting order related emails from us at all. We were made aware of this by some of our customers, so I'm posting to a couple of places - our customers, especially those using gmail, need to whitelist riorondo.com specifically, or your order total may not show up in your gmail account at all, not even in the spam box. We don't know what their problem is.

Anyway, just trying to make sure that word is out, don't forget to have fun,

A major windstorm made a huge mess where our website is hosted. Several dead and as of last night, 370,000 people without power. Of course, our host is in there too, so the website is down for a little while.

In the meantime, we've got a fresh new version of the catalog, with gold parts and everything, uploaded to our yahoo news list files section.


Or maybe at http://9000shops.com/RIOCAT.PDF if that one is working.

For now, just place orders by emailing them to "sales@riorondo.com", or calling them in between 11am & 6pm Central Standard Time to 620-668-5421.

It seems that Yahoo stuff hasn't necessarily been getting to it's own accounts, and even less so to things like gmail accounts, so once the current stuff is taken care of we'll be looking into a fresh news list that isn't dependent on such shenanigans.

Please make sure you whitelist riorondo.com, or correspondence regarding your order (like a cost confirmation for Paypal payment) may never even reach your account.

Have Fun,

Wow, Gary the new catalog is wonderful. Easy to see all the goodies you offer. Thanks so much for posting!
PS My heartfelt condolences to the friends and family of those who lost loved ones in the winds. Hope all have power by now.
