Let me know ...


Sounds fine to me Joe... I'll PM my shipping address if you go ahead and get me one. I'm very grateful for your assistance with this - beggars belief in this day and age that a company with an on-line system can only accept US CCs - mind you in many ways that just strengthens my belief that many US citizens don't realise there is a world out there that doesn't conform to what they are used to... just check my spelling and grammar for starters! :lol:

Ian, I have some good news and some more good news. Good news is that the Air Eraser was in stock at my local store and I brought it home for you. The "more good news" is that I had a coupon for 25% off! Look for a PM with all the details. We'll get this tool headed your way this week.

Have you tried the tool out yet? I was hoping we might see some pics of your handy work.

Sadly my recovery is not going well... I'm experiencing great difficulty in bending my new knee and a lot of my "spare" time is spent either walking (to try and loosen things up) or at physio. Since I have to use it out in the garage this complicates things a bit more... hopefully soon!

Hi Ian, sorry to hear the new Knee is not quite working for you at the moment. I do hope it comes good for soon.
