Response for an HSpin Icon?


#1

New user, long time lurker.
I recently picked up an HSpin Icon. It takes the silicon red pads. These are out of stock, most anywhere. What can I use to replace these?
Thanks in advance,
Matt.

Can you do you own silicon? Or are you talking about what the pads are made of?


#3

Yeah, I’ve done silicone. Don’t like to, but have. They have shallow grooves, too. The original was a red silicone ring. I was wondering what other rings would fit into the original grooves, as HSpin rings have run out.

Use this as the last resource. Find a pad that has similar thickness and width to the groove. Most likely it will be too big because HSpin uses D bearing (?) iirc. Cut a small section of the pad making it C shaped to the point it can fit into the groove. You may reconnect the cut part with superglue (recommended), or just leave as is.

Ok, sounds good.

A duncan silicone pad is probably a good start.

Disregard finalfantasy9001’s bit.
