Jer I'll take it. Tried to send you a PM but it says there is no more room until you delete some old stuff, so web site rejected it. Shoot me a PM with your email and I will respond, I can do PayPal or send you a check. Either is fine with me.

Got the box yesterday Gerald and nothing broke! Nice job of packing. I will put check in the mail tomorrow, thanks. Now I have a question that maybe you or someone else can answer. I see there are some missing parts and one size roller is broke or maybe just missing a part. Can parts for these be bought? I just did a search and found ATS has what looks to be the exact replacement. Anybody have any experience there? I will be giving them, ATS, a call but I will do some more research as I need to learn to identify the various size parts.

Jerr, don't sweat it, I am very happy with what I have. I only know there is something not quite right because of the internet and I want to make the kit whole if possible, as it is just to nice to not make it so. There is a kit just like yours with what I believe all the pieces except for a broken box but it is listed at $350 start bid. and ATS wants over $700 for a new set! :eek:

Jer, he says with egg on his face, I just discovered that the bead kit has most everything that is supposed to be there. I had not seen the 4 holes, one each corner and 3 of them contain pieces! So I think I am down to maybe just one bushing missing but won't know until I do some more investigating. I am in love with the kit, wish I had long ago!
