BobC,

I'm on my 6th turnout. Had a bit of a slowdown due to passing a 10mmx6mm kidney stone while working at the golf course a few weeks back! No pain or blood, must have formed in my bladder, if it had formed in the kidney I would have been on the floor. The next weekend I passed 2 more but they were 1/3 the size of the big one. I took a photo of the big one and sent it to my urologist. His office called a couple of days later and wanted me to come in. When I showed him the stone he shook his head and said "You PASSED this?" It looked like grains of sand glued together.

I had a time with the 5th turnout, just didn't go right. When I finished it it appeared to be good but last night I picked it up and there's a 1/4" bend in the stock rails (maybe I should use it on a curve?!?!?!). So actually I'm on my 5th one as I need to redo the one with the bend.

The first 3 I did using some old pieces of rubber anti-fatigue matting, no problem. The next couple I used some new matting and it's much softer than the old stuff, when I put a spike in I have to put a piece of wood underneath to keep the other spikes from popping up. Maybe I need to let it sit outside and "cure" before I use anymore of it.

Reg, Joe Foehrkolb offers machining of the drivers, but for now I'm going to leave them alone. Not sure if I want to spend the $$$ on something that seems to be working, although they would look better than the pizza-cutters they are now.
