K, more on the update,
I finally figured out a manageable way to attach the footman (good grief, that was a PITA!!!) And
it actually works O M G !!! No it isn't perfectly balanced, nope it's definitely NOT quiet but hey, it's an addiction n what cha gonna do but git yerself a fix uh huh!! Maybe one of these days when I win the lotto (if I ever play that is) I'll get myself a proper wheel.
