I was just on the phone to customer service about these shafts, since
they had back-ordered me on one.
I was told that it'd be several weeks: apparently a whole shipment of
these was "lost in the ocean".
I don't know if the ship went down, or if a container slipped off a
deck, or what.
"Lost in the ocean" sure beats "the dog ate my homework" all hollow!
I wonder if Pflum's shell had anything to do with this?
