Seek Thin Rubberized Cloth For Pneumatics
By Jeff Bridges

I realize that I might be starting a tangent here, but I need to get
this off my chest.  Ever since that Australia firm that makes the thin
cloth has stopped making it I am being forced to use Polylon.  I have
never liked it, it's the worst thing to glue on wood.

What are your thoughts on being forced to use this material?  And has
anyone contacted that person in Australia to get him to start a run of
cloth?  Someone out there has got to get our cloth back in production
-- it can't be just one person that made it.

We need to get back to the thin pneumatic cloth that we are all used
to using.  When I get my shop opened up I don't want to have to explain
to my customers that Polylon won't last 50 years.  Okay, sorry for my
rant.  Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.  <lol>
