I mix them in with fiber, and down they go. The wooden handles dissolve, but those wire mute handles hurt.

Very good, RPD. I'm counting my blessings that I'm not your Internist. ;-)

I think a little something is getting lost in the translation. "Process" might mean sell, recycle, replace. Am I on track?

I think A=443 might mean "What tools do you use for the regulating process? I used to use regulating pliers for capstan adjustment, but now use a capstan tool."
