Subject: [CR] Saddle soaking: No kidding?

I almost checked the calendar to see if it was April first when I read the recent post about saddle soaking. I guess if Tony C. likes it, it must be good, but it really took me by surprise. Would any of you who are planning to try this please take some close up photos of the surface and shape , etc., before and after , and share them with the rest of us?

I am still a skeptic, I'm afraid. I am reminded of the old Charles Atlas claims that "In just seven days I can make you a man" Hell, the only time I've seen anything like that happen was in the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Some things just seem too good to be true. Are you doing anything special to re-shape the saddles afterward?
