The original post is a good lesson for all of us on how not to be.
Great advice!
"Knee jerk, foot in the mouth" posts can be painful for all involved.
I've learned the hard way too.....

@ Wirespokes and camgregus, thanks for your wisdom understanding the situation - I am not as perfect as some I guess, but when I screw up, I acknowledge it and do what I can to make it right.

So, the shaft was worse than expected, as a result the expected three week turn around was understandably extended to 5 weeks. Guy had a donor shaft on the shelf for a few extra bucks, which was a great help. He stayed in touch throughout the process and the new shaft was nothing short of a work of art! I have about 500 miles on the new shaft, and so far so good! Aside from the initial hiccup, working with Guy Hendersen was easy and a pleasure, and I would recommend him highly.

No shit started. The initial estimate given (prior to having the thing in hand) was around 3 weeks, give or take. I think that is more for a refresh than a complete bring-it-back-from-the-dead resurrection like mine needed. Honestly when it comes to a part like this, and the work it required, 5 weeks is damn fast in my opinion!
