To stop my paddle wandering away from where it's supposed to be I use
Blutack, which we get over here and is normally used to stick
drawings/paintings (usually done by my children) to the wall etc.
The stuff is a bit like plastacine (which I guess would do as well)
and you break a lump off the slab that you buy from the Stationers and
roll it in your fingers until it's warm and then push a blob onto each
foot or corner of the key and press the key onto the bench. A great
advantage is that you can adjust for level, by adding more Blutack you
can raise that keys, take some off to lower, and you can adjust for a
tilt by pressing harder on one side or corner.
No commercial link with Blutack etc. etc...
While I'm on, anyone know if the 49er/OHR kits are available in the
UK? If so via whom? If not anyone any advice on obtaining lists of
kits and prices please?
