Lexie,
That sounds intriguing. Always good to keep up with new developments that might help the machinery! When I mentioned that things are sometimes lost, I was thinking of the change in lubrication compounds that hit the SP4449 group. Their supplier changed the composition of what they were buying without mentioning it, and it wasn't any good for their application anymore! (I don't have the particulars, so I'll just say "names have been changed to protect the guilty") :)
S'
