Lubricants dry out, so it's no permanent solution.Hello!!!!
Why not just add more lube?!!!!
Or put hot glue in the pieces as a filler?!!!!
Just a suggestion!
Oh hi!!!!!!!!!Lubricants dry out, so it's no permanent solution.
Hot glue does sound interesting, but I don't want to be the guinea pig for that. lol
Anyone got videos? I know Cyoubx had a foam mod, but I dunno.
Awesome.... Thanks for sharing!I posted some of my experiments on another older thread on this subject.
Recap: The large flat surfaces vibrate like a drumskin. Bonding something lossy/absorptive to the inner surface will dampen down the vibration. It doesn't have to attach to the entire surface, the central region is OK. My first experiments used square pieces (about 7mm x 7mm) cut from an old bicycle inner tube (butyl rubber), and fixed with either rubber cement or contact adhesive (Evostick).
Other alternative rubbers that could work are neoprene ones; pure neoprene is heavy, and also is smelly, lighter derivatives like EPDM (I think that's the name...) are less stinky. Sticky-backed sheets of this stuff are available from eBay sellers. It may also be used in some mouse mats, see the above post.
Another thing worth considering is what mechanical contact results in the noise being generated? Do two pieces hit each other in an obvious direct way, and if so, can the edges/curves be modified so the transition is less sudden. This tackles the cause of the problem, rather than the symptom.
