No one knows.  Do you have a custom build?

I don't mean to sound so mean but COVID-19 wouldn't be too "polite" when it comes to the elderly with underlying medical conditions.

Fortunately for Paul and his family, the Isle of South Ulst is miles away from the rest of the world!😷

How are conditions in Hong Kong?  What are you hearing about China?  Are people going back to work?

I think it's safe to assume this Wuhan virus is going to set the custom build process back indefinitely.

 

No need for virus excuses, the custom build process is already back.

Actually It's a long story.

 

I was #15 (I placed my original order on Jun 2017) and we reached to the point that my PSU will be shipped August 2018 but after waiting for long time without the success to catch my PSU I thought I can re-specified my PSU due to further delay.

 

Paul told me since I re-specification my PSU which was from a year ago (April 2019), my builds moved around the schedule to accommodate changing supplier lead times and he thinks the materials will not be on his bench before starting his build #23 so he eventually moved me to that build but unfortunately AFAIK from those who received their PSU from build#15 to #17 they only delayed due to re-specification but not moved to down list.

 

Anyone here has an advice.

I would assume your parts are all on hand by now.  If your order was placed before all the others remaining in the queue, then hopefully your build is up next.  Things like repairs or R&D to resolve technical issues can interfere with the timing of custom builds.  The exact nature of the process has always been a bit mysterious to me.

I'm not sure if Stephen can help me with this issue or not.

 

Probably doesn't hurt to ask.

Good luck may I know when you placed your order.

 

I believe it was late October 2017.

I was contacted by Paul mid of February, among details on difficulty he faced last year there was apology for the inconvinience.

He also told me resuming the work on my custom build #23 which, assuming no more unforeseen circumstances beyond his control, should become ready to ship end of March.

 

I acknowleged his message with thanks and confimation I'm ready to get it.

 

But all this was before Covid-19 knocked at our doors...

 

At the moment I can imagine there could be other priority for many of us, including Paul.

It remains being on a remote island which was not visited by many tourists during this winter might make his place more safe than many urban places we live in.

Assuming he is in good health, with access to food, provided the custom build material is already at his premise, then the build can go on.

The virus has reached the Outer Hebrides.  For Paul's sake as well as everyone else at PHD, I hope he will be staying at home for now.

The very long waiting times apply to Paul Hynes’ custom build service. This does not apply to products from here: https://www.paulhynesdesign.com The good people there can tell you the current waiting times.
