Or at least the best that I’ve found.
So…I ran out of sili stickers to put back in my Metal Drifter, and tried putting some silicone in the pad recess. Using both regular and flowable sili, neither worked for more than two or three binds before making a huge mess.
But, I have found out a way to put sili in the recess and make it stay for more than five minutes.
First, take a worn out friction sticker that is just fiber, and stick that in the recess. Make sure the adhesive still works.
Next, with the worn sticker in there, fill the recess up with flowable silicone. Level it out and let it sit for at least 24 hrs.
Now, you’re ready to play. I’ve had the sili/cloth pad in there for a couple of weeks, and it is working just fine.I do not yet know if it will wear out like a friction sticker (where the tackiness wears off) or as a sili sticker (where the adhesive fails). But, if anything, this method will last at least a couple of weeks until you can get some more sili pads.
When the new response fails, I will edit this, if I remember to.
