Hah. I was going to suggest you send it to rockerarms.com, but figured 
shipping would be prohibitive.

BTW, when did rockerarms rebuild your shaft? There's been at least one 
change of ownership and a name change, I think, and responses have been 
spotty. They did my BJ8's shaft many years ago, and it's held up well.
