Re: [IPk] inserting Tenders


It doesn't matter with any needle Tender or otherwise.  What John Davis said
was very true you have to put the tender in with a smooth firm action, going
in at about 30 degrees or as one person put it like a plane coming in to
land.  Any hesutation and you are like to get rucking up of the teflon

Best wishes
