You might have to adjust that for inflation however! :lol:


If he ADDS a couple of ANYTHING, he'll be POKIN' his EYES OUT ! ! !
If BRUTE-FORCE isn't working, you're just not applying enough of it ! ! !

The allen screws and handle rotation seemed to work perfectly, at least as far as I can tell. If the fix doesn't hold permanently, I will go to plan B, then C, etc. I really appreciate you guys teaching an old dog new tricks. Thanks for all your help. KOPAP. Billy
