    Well I am in possession of said rest from a semi-retired bench restshooter (Baker) and it doesn't look possible to me. But then again, I have trouble tying my shoes sometimes.

    Dick, how much would you charge to show me how it is done? Also, anymore left hand Bat's for sale? I am still kicking myself for letting the last one go! Damn, Damn, Damn, etc.

    It was ordered as Left Handed, I have heard of people converting them but it involves taking apart and putting back together and reversing some parts. Farley told me it takes a special Jig they have to do it but I know people who have done it themselves.

    Thanks Dick. That was what I was looking for. Guess I won't be taking Baker's rest apart!

    Or I could kept silent in the first place and not subjected myself to wise crack comments just because I had no idea where the question was going.
