Back in the dark ages before Reboot left Milwaukee the head off the main salon froze up. Since there are two heads on Reboot this was not a big crisis as I just used the head in the bow. But one day I decided I would try to unjam the head. I took apart the wrong bolts. The next thing I knew I had pieces of motor in my hands. My attempts to reassemble the motor did not work out very well so I just let it go.
My next slip neighbor Phil is quite good with things mechanical so I asked him if he would be kind enough to help me get the motor back together again. He agreed and in short order had it all reassembled. Of course the head was still jammed. Phil just jumped in and started working to unjam the motor.
The long and short of the story is that once again the jam was a tampon that someone had attempted to flush down the toilet. Once again I entreat:: Ladies, please do not put anything in the head that has not first passed from your mouth through your alimentary tract. PLEASE!!!
So now I am not only the "old guy" but the guy with two working heads!
