Thanks guys,

I was going to use a good quality brush for the final coats, but those microfibre rollers definitely look like a better way to go.

I couldn't find a supplier for felting here in the UK.

Eileen suggested Hanging Basket Liner so I bought a small roll on eBay.

I think it will do the job just fine.

Jim,

If you pm me your address I'll post you some " thick wool carpet underlay for the internal damping for the cost of the postage. It's the stuff I use.

Would be better than the basket lining stuff, hey



Colin

Dear Colin,

That's very kind of you to offer that, I wish I'd asked what to use before, I've already glued 2 laters around the centre baffle and into one of the sides just waiting to put a third layer on the baffle.

Warmest wishes - Jim

Very modernist. Looks like they've come off the set of 2001. Or Ken Shuttleworth's Crescent House.

I like them... is that a pair of CHR sitting on the B&Ws waiting to be installed?

Will be very interested in comments vis-s-vis the B&Ws.

SE 300B or 2A3? The preamp?
