Subject: the quest for a working stylus
From: Shawn <scdolley>

Dear digest,

	I have a couple of players that work ok, but really need new styli to
function well.  I ordered two of these, at the cost of $40 a piece, from fox
international.  Both were missing the gold thread connection.  I returned the
defective parts, and asked for one credit and one replacement.  The credited
me, and replaced the part with a stylus that has the gold thread, bit the
thread is loose on one end.  This all happened about a year ago, and I gave up.

	Is there a way to repair the part I have, or is there a better source for
these now discontinued parts?
