I got an email this morning from Tommy. Apparently, he is "no longer a registered user" on eBay (again). I have no idea why this is, but it keeps happening; like the swallows returning to Capistrano.
On another note, a dealer sent me a Thomason with a broken worm, but in the pictures the corkscrew was complete. And, he refuses to refund. Anyone need a perfect Thomason with badge, bone handle, and brush, but lacking a helix?
