Thanks for the reading wolfdog, I've gotton a somewhat general consensus that through normal wear scroll head shavings are not a major problem, but also not totally out of the realm of possibly, especially if perhaps the quality control on the scroll line is lacking or any other number of manufacturing problems. Thanks everybody for your input.
