I get GREAT service from Maidstone Engineering Services (owned by Maxitrak). If I phone them on a Monday, most orders are sitting in my mailbox by Friday. GLR Distributors are also excellent. Both businesses have web sites.
FyneFort safety valves were very nice beacuse they were small and could be easily fitted with a shroud to look like rams horn type valve. Some of their fittings were a bit crude and were as you say waste of paint.
I once ordered in a small selection of Fyne Fort safeties and I was greatly disappointed to find that none of them could ever have worked as-supplied because the springs were several times too heavy. Installing lighter springs only produced inconsistent dribblers, typically the symptom of poorly proportioned ball seat and chamber geometry. Yours may have been from an "improved" batch. Fyne Fort was not above improving the product when necessary, and they did look nice.
