So 2 weeks ago the doc said that the pain in my elbow was tennis elbow. He sent me to a specialist who promptly hit me with a cordisone shot. Then in our discussion he determined that my italian hand corker was the culprit. So my brand new italian floor corker is now on order, Good news right? :b

Richard, at least it wasn't the cramps from doing push ups, or God forbid, the dreaded golfers hip!! LMAO

Sorry pal, but, I am having a hard time picturing you in a pair of tennis shorts. Maybe you should get a second opinion!! LOL

Glad to see a positive spin on a painful situation!

Now what can I get for that pain in my two frozen big toes (hallux rigidus)? Maybe some cheap imigrant labor to do the bending for me? Hmmmmmmm......

Lurker that stinks. The first time I got it, it took 6 months to go away. A year later I re injured it while aerating my lawn and it took a year before the pain went away. It sucks getting older and damn if gravity to play havoc on our bodies also.

I had that when i played college baseball - try throwing a ball across the diamond with tennis elbow!!

Hurt like hell - it got to the point that i couldn't even squeeze the ball.

So i feel your pain - good luck!!

Well, all I can say is if that doesnt make it better there was that guy on here that was selling a pneumatic kit to attach to the floor corker to make it automatic. :)

thought I remebered somewhere seeing a gun that shot corks.

Granted, you would have to be a pretty good shot. But it is a thought.

Actually you couldnt aim at the bottles sideways, because the contents would pour out.

You would have to fire your cork gun from standing above.

You would still need to be a good shot. If you miss, it could richottet and you could end up putting your eye out.

Who knew winemakingcould be so dangerous.

Poor Richard, all he wanted to do was make a little wine, now he cant even play tennis!!

Oh the Irony!

LMAO

BUTT, A GREAT excuse to tell SWMBO that you need a floor corker. And a DOCTOR said so...

Tom: "GREAT NEWS! Thats what I have." you have tennis elbow also? How did you get it?

Lurker: Did you get a medical excuse from your doctor so you can declare it on your taxes. Might as well go pneumatic as Wade suggested. LOL
