C'mon now, read before you post. Go look at his video, object is located.




Don't know what all the fuss is about anyways. He can just buy another alignment tool for a few bucks.

That'll probably be my next step if the grabber doesn't work!

Haha, I totally forgot about that. Done! Yeah, there's one in the area. I'm just so used to Amazon that I rarely go in person

Hope this is a help: Jim
For sure. Thanks!

Anticlimatic is good!

I'd be putting something sticky on the jaws of the grabber, might only get one shot at it in its current position.

Just came across this. Read every post with growing excitement (and anxiety). Get to here and I feel like Iíve watched a TV show not realising it was TO BE CONTINUED. Nearly there, and canít wait to find out who shot JR!

Hi Zix,
Sorry to be entertained by your troubles, but this is a great thread-full of drama.

I have my fingers crossed for you, along with everyone else.

I have a set of surgical clamps that lock, ideal for this as they are small and keep the pressure on the rod while trying to manoeuvre it out.

I wish you the very best of luck
Regards
Peg.
