Do they just use a friction fit over the shaft Erik?

I was thinking of trying to make one myself but am not sure that the run out on my lathe is good enough. I know some guys who may do it for me if I ask nicely and pay handsomely.

Connected there, but you also need to leave Q902 in place and cut the trace.

Wow, that's nice. A shame we can't get more of these. I was thinking it would be a great way to experiment with the Shiga puck and see how (if) they sound different.

Been there, done that. Yes they do all sound different - subtly, but definitely different. Its a question of cost and availability more than anything else.....

I used and still use ebony puck and alternate back and forth between that and the standard one.... its worth experimenting alright....

You are too kind Erik!!

It is nowhere near as nice a piece of work as the delrin one in your photo above though...

I would like the skills to make that!
