Of my warhammer stuff? knock yourself out https://www.youtube.com/c/TheHalfarsedHeresy

I have loads of pics but I don't ACTUALLY want to be a spammer. If there is a warhammer section in the off topic I'll post some in the future


I've merged the two threads! Here is a piccy of some of mine

You can also refelt your old cartridges -- the original felt is probably crumbling to dust by now. CHR$ on here has lots of details. He has left a link to the felt he uses on ebay, but not, they will need cutting down to fit.

That link is dead Norm. I do still cut up suitable felt pieces though. Happy to provide a few to anyone on here.

Q40 and Q68 also present

Ask me about felt pads - I can cut them to size and they have proved excellent for mdv data recovery.

My bad, I should have checked. Thanks for letting me know.

Did you ever get your ED drives from your mother's place?

Cheers,
Norm.

No :(. Not been over for almost 2 years now. I don't tend to go over in the winter as it can be a nightmare here with the snow and I prefer to fly over and drive back - not that there's been much snow thus far. I'll make a trip in March/April.

Ok, no worries, I was just wondering.
