Hello all,

I am servicing my Comp's at the mo and found that the black spongy rebound bumpers at the bottom of the legs are completely knackered. Does anyone have any, or know of anything else I could use?

Cheers
Tim

Anything made of soft rubber will do. The originals were 1/2 inch thick. I use bits of old elastomer that arent any good for damping. You can try bouncy balls, silicone sealant - squige some out, let it dry and then use a knife to shape it, rubber washers from B&Q, them anti vibration cotton reel mounts with the middle drilled out. etc etc. Just get creative!
