Close, but no cigar. TT
I can certainly see that. Perhaps that explains low sales and perhaps they are just moving them out. Hope they use good adhesives! On the other hand I work for an airplane and submarine manu and how many items are "glued" together would give anyone the willies if testing didn't prove otherwise. I have had the cork rotate on a much more expensive rod, so cant say I havnt been warned!
