63867 Joe and Rhonda DiPietro <laws@m...> 1999‑06‑11 Re: The ideal moving filletster
GG's:

Have enjoyed this thread, even though I've never had the pleasure of using a
filletster...a neophyte I truly am...
Not many things manufactured for lefties (the gauche and sinister)...on early
Honda Accords, the right side wheel nuts were reverse threaded tightened
counterclockwise...let's see, tolls booth receptacles and water closet flush
handles...
Sorry, couldn't resist...oh yeah, one of the meds we use in pulmonary medicine
(racemic epinephrine) the gauche molecular isomer is the active one...

And besides, us 'southpaws' (from baseball) are in our 'right' mind...now you
know my problem ...He He He...

Have a super day...
