Just wanted to say, i heard richards 401 today, with and without bands and yes, it does make a big difference.

I wont go into details.

Its pretty obvious though, damping the platter has to be a good thing.

How do you stop a bell from ringing?

Put something in contact with the outer diameter!

Is anybody still wanting any big O-rings? I've just got a quote from James Walker, I'm having 2 off:
O RING NITRILE 70 SHORE BLACK MEDIUM MOULDED ID 291.69MM DS 3.53MM. £10.05 each + VAT

I'm hoping it'll be a tight stretch around 299mm Image

First page says min. order value is £85, but then the 2nd page shows just the prices of the the items I've asked about. So I dunno ~ maybe need to add another six off?

I think rich measured his, i 'think' they may have been 280mm diameter?

Also, the e.bay ones are 5.something thick.

At £10 each + vat +postage would it not be cheaper to buy the ebay ones?

I didnt think they would be cheap, even from the wholesalers/manufacturers.

You can have 5 mil ones if you want, I was only saying wot I want

ebay's all very well but you've no idea how old they are/where they've been/what's happened to them/if they're actually any good 'til you get 'em in yer actual mitts

I explained to wotstheirname what I wanted them for so they got an idea of the hardness required (there's all different sorts apparently)

This their sizes charts (1.5Mb PDF):

I looked in the 'chart 50' lists :)

The only thing I have ever successfully stuck with super glue is my fingers.

Should I have a go!?!

In that case, only if you have a blunt edge handy to prise your little digits apart again ;) How do I know, been there done that, funny how superglue is better at sticking skin than what your trying to stick. Suppose that's what it was designed for tho'.

First used in Vietnam wasn't it?

Yes seen something about DIY O-ring cord before, while I was looking for something to use as belts for doing up an old tape recorder.

ebay's such a pain tho, looking for something I want that isn't there!
