    Again JMHO
    I agree with rdbass. The reason her rear foot is spinning as it is, is because of what she is doing (or not doing) with her front foot. She is essentially blocking some of her typical movements.

    Not 'squishing the bug':

    Last time I looked for gasket material for a tee, I couldn’t find the right stuff. I used the sidewall area of a tractor tire inner tube. Farm stores have “baler belt” material. That looks pretty good.

    Do not argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    DD and I were at the cages this morning. While she was warming up with tee swings, I was walking around to inspect the equipment. They have at least a dozen tees there. So I am going to take some rope or string the next time we go and tie it to two tees. If I like the drill, I may buy the pvc to make one. But I think the tees and string will provide a good option to test it.
