    If you could anneal her that would be great as I like a soft touch. [:$]
    Don't like no hard as nails lady.

    Will there be warranty? I could return her too you for a skim in the lathe if she were to get to obese. In fact while your at it, part off her feet for me, that will save her getting out of the kitchen and buying shoes. :lol:
