geeky would-only-save-negligible-money LINKAGE question

Postby bloke » Sat Dec 29, 2018 12:47 pm

I like using Dubro's cone-shaped brass "risers" that come with their plastic links for installing linkage - regardless of whether econo or Minibal.

The Dubro risers (and "riser" is a nomenclature that I came up with) are available in two sizes: very small (with a very small hole) and medium (with a larger hole). The very small ones work will with the links that Miraphone typically uses, and the larger ones work well with the links that B&S/MW typically uses.

Looking through Dubro's complete catalog, I see no way to buy one, a dozen, or a hundred risers without buying the links that go with them.

Does anyone know otherwise?

The blokePlace Crappy Lathe® is fully operational, but I'd rather spend 20¢ than $20 worth of time...particularly as I would like to have a few dozen of these in two sizes.

Also, there's blokeRule1:
Life is short; don't waste time making stuff that can be bought.
...which is similar to blokeRule2:
As long as they will do it WELL, it's always better to get someone else to do it.

I sent an email to DuBro.
They sent an email back with a quote.
I bought a few dozen of both sizes of these from them.

Ask (PAY) and ye shall receive !!! :D 8)

I call them "risers" and DuBro calls them "shims". Since DuBro MAKES them, then they are "shims". :|
