Naturally.. and as such finding information quickly would be most useful for the people. Might even prove a less daunting task for new comers.
Any Grado pioneers would like to chip in?
Wayne, I should have asked you when you sent my Grados out, but would it be possible to send me a small bit of Dynamat too? I'm thinking it will be better than the FukTak I have been using. Thanks.
......who cares? I'm one who detests rules that are rules simply for being rules. This seems to be the case here.
"well it's a law/rule therefore you should follow it." People under Nazi/facist rule often think the same thing. Obviously these two scenarios can't even be compared but I'm just saying.
Those cups are beautiful by the way. I may order some new ones and replace bila's cocobolo's. ANyone have any spare dynamat by the way? never ended up getting any
I agree with you to a certain extant, but I don't need to be reading threads full of people hawking their own goods. It is a good rule. If you make a good product, word of mouth will spread, much like it has for MOTs like Marty and some others. Products should be bought on their merits (price, craftsmanship, etc), not because of inappropriate advertising blitzes.
There are subtle differences from what I understand, however most people have had the best results using Dynamat. Perhaps they'll chime in soon!
I deleted the link to the blog, but my better judgement says it should remain. I dont want our valued member mlantinen aka "Marty" to get into any trouble or get this thread locked again.
Its a shame that I have to edit my thoughts and praise for a product that is truly impressive.

That's what we're going to do. I think it's for the best. I don't know if it's automatic or anything but that'll be part of my signature.
Something else I have been thinking about, does anyone else here use flat pads? I only ask because I really like mine (more than bowls, comfies, or quarter modded comfies) and was thinking of making another pair that could be shipped around as a trial to others to see if they enjoy this pad style. You can still get TTVJ flats, but they are expensive and modded Senn pads are cheaper and will likely get you most of the way there. I have no intention of selling them, but maybe others can benefit from listening to them or using them as a template to make their own. If anyone has any thoughts on this, let me know.
I still use and love my flats. You cant cheap out on flats. Just get them from Todd and move on. The senn pads are nowhere near the same as true flats.
I opened the shells of MS1 in no time at all and with no problems whatsoever using the spoon technique (http://gilmore2.chem.northwestern.edu/projects/showfile.php?file=grado_prj.htm : Method 3)
It was really much easier than I expected. Also, I just did it about 30 minutes ago. About to go to the store to buy blu-tack or felt
