I suspect Gavin was beside the real mainline when he took his photo

They do not always work seamlessly. Yours being an exception it seems. My feelings stem from the same issue as that of framing a painting, I have sold watercolours that folk have considered pricey @ $60 then go and put on a $125 frame on them and expect me to get excited at what a great job they did of framing(commercial) of my art. The frame being considered worth more valuable to spend dollars on in terms of outlay than the painting.

The guy that made these, has just retired his parts business.
