Another damping mod for quickie
« on: October 29, 2019, 07:29:55 AM »
Started some damping mods for my quickie and thought i'd try the copper tube mod as it's been reported to be success. Well while sourcing copper tube at work (a biggish paper mill) thought came to me to use brass tube or similar stuff, since i've read positive stuff about brasses vibration controlling abilities from one manufacturers page, whom i later learned actually does this stuff for tubes too, search the forum it has come up here too. But to the point, i went with cheap solution which worked really well, actually tested against copper tubes and it was no comparison, brass was way better. What i used was some brass hose barb lined with velcro for snug fit.  I cut the bolt of from the end but it could be beneficial to keep it for extra mass, will try that next.
