Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

Mine was a BHR and done in Nov 2000 --- I was told it consisted of carbon/cobalt /chrome but no percentages declared , also have the video of various materials and failures over the years till finally using this mix . Excellent -- full black and decker job if you don't mind real flesh and blood , well it convinced me to have it done !
