yeah i dont have photos of the 10, most of them ended up in the bags or rags in my mrs sowing box. that blue cloth was the best, before that i used the more similar cloth which did sag and had to be pulled from the hiding i gave it this blue cloth is rock solid its what i would use again

for sure thats why i recommend a synthetic blend, I've seen this cloth type used on the back of photos to preserve them it seems to last a long time. plus i liked this colour it reminded me of the tattered eureka flag smile

Hi all. I managed to get things working well with my old gold wizard. Much thanks to nightjar too.

Basically the old girl needed correctly weighted flaps in the upper chamber to pressurise the bellows downstroke....plus it seems this machine needs a heavy tight weave riffle cloth which is what it came with originally. This again must help pressurise on the downstroke better.

I had a successful match at spotlight being remo weather proof canvas works a beauty.

The keenes cloth in my machine was obviously not tight weaved enough for my air system.

Cheers wazza

Hi Wazza,
Happy to see you have your "old girl" up and running and making dust off the riffles and not being sucked into the lower chamber.
Good find locating the Spotlight canvas, going to get a sheet to renew my 12V bellows dry blower riffle screen. smile

Happy Hunting, Nightjar.

Hi Golddig,
Your cloth looks very course you must have had a lot of fines fall through (Wazzas problem) if you blower is the bellows type. Looking forward to seeing how his goes with the canvas he found at Spotlight.

I used 100 mesh screen print material from a craft shop. Works very well and strong. Stop a lot of the dust falling into the main box to. Even caught mercury in mine, not that you want that!
