      Hello John -

      I got my Vibroplex Anniversary bug for Christmas last year - a gift
      from my wife. My Elmer stressed the importance of adjustments and he
      gave me a good idea for slowing down the bug until I got used to it.
      He told me to open the dit contact all the way and that helped me
      tremendously. I have since then closed the contact points a wee bit
      as my ability on the bug has improved.

      Just thought I would pass this little tid-bit on to you.
