    Fair enough, I’ve seen them both on the net only. I’ve thought about getting one, but don’t think they work with 8” wheels, so I was hoping someone else would buy a s/s/s/a first and then do all the hard work!

    You have two parts of brain, 'left' and 'right'. In the left side, there's nothing right. In the right side, there's nothing left.
