Yes Peter, I bought it from Ebay.co.uk. They didn't offer shipping to US so I had it shipped to my brothers place and picked it up on the way back to Heathrow before flying back. It's pretty substantial, so I have no doubt it will do the job.

I went ahead and sent a message to the seller asking if he would ship to the US. Most likely not...

If not, you can always borrow my one Brad, or I can get another sent to my brother and he will post over.

I appreciate that! It's odd that he will ship just about everywhere but the US.

Maybe he doesn't like Americans

I like the looks of the roller on your tool. I had trouble pushing mine through the channel. It had a tendency to dig in to the rubber. Let us know how it works.

If you don't hear back in a day or so I will order a few of the tools Brad and get them sent over, with my next 'Red Cross' parcel....I can't survive for long without supplies from 'home'.

When I worked on Johnston Island packages from home were always a welcome sight

Good friend of mine worked at the loran station there and I pulled in a few times on different Coast Guard cutters for a mid patrol break/liberty port.

The Loran tower was knocked down in the early to mid 90s, can't remember the exact year. Not much of a place for liberty was it

Out of a 12 year span I have a total of about 8 years on island. Interesting place to live and work.

I don't remember any Coast Guard ships pulling into port during my years there. That sort of activity was frownd on during the years we processed munitions.
