You’re welcome. The difference is there is this forum thread topic and there are private messages. I don’t know how you managed it but you sent me a private message after my first post, instead of just responding to this thread (which is the standard thing people do).
You can see your private messages by clicking “My Account” under your name (upper right of this page) and then looking around on that screen for “Messages”. There is an inbox and sent.
Anyway, sounds like you are doing well with the cork, which can be tricky, I should think. Use cork grease!! Good luck!
