    probably used a drum sander to remove that amount of material. I must admit I would have ditched it.

    I know, I know!

    The arm is back from Johnnie - heís done his usual superb job on it and the bearings feel much better but itís still a bit battered visually. Iím going to fit it for now, but keep and eye out for a suitable replacement.
