I'm here, just back from the East Coast.  FOr sure there is no reason for
this to happen.  Please send me one or all of the crimped sets that you
used with the SofSerter.  I can make  no promises about sending you new
ones, but I will try to get someone to talk to you about how you are
inserting them.  Call me at
1-800 933 3322 x 2913 and mail the sets back to me at
12744 San Fernando Road
Sylmar CA 91342.

If you mail needles back please make sure that they can not poke anyone.

Clearly mark the package for
