Stephen Buda has done work for others fixing out of square threads.

Whose to say if you get a new corrector you simply get the same problem?

Cheers Greg, good enough that someone agrees with my line of thinking.

I thought about contacting him to see if he can fix it, but ultimately that's guaranteed money and maybe it can be fixed.

I decided to just buy a new Paracorr Type 2 which I've just ordered.

Thanks Marc... yeah sometimes I wonder if this hobby is the reason I'm going bald more than the genetic factors I first assumed ;-)
