I've heard the horror stories as well, but actually did have a fairly  
pleasant experience with Todd.  Back in January of this year I ordered  
a bunch of replacement IMSAI parts, switch caps, replacement front  
panels, sheet metal, etc.  I first e-mailed him asking about price and  
availability.  I received a quick response with details regarding  
pricing and shipping costs.  After I placed the order I did have to  
prod him once, to which he quickly apologized for the delay and then  
proceeded to ship the items.

All I can suggest is to try and contact him.  If he does offer to sell  
what you are looking for, use PayPal.  That way, if there is an issue  
later on, you can probably get PayPal to arbitrate.
