What about the White foam stuff? Can I pick this up somewhere instead of having it shipped?
Grabbed mine from home hardware.

You don't own an exacto knife or pair of scissors?

They aren't uniform though. It would be uneven dampening would it not?

I've never been all that concerned with noise levels (run my rigs 24/7 100% full out) so I can't say that I've got personal experience with this, but I'm looking at a set of Doc Scholls right now and I'm sure I could come up with something that would work using double sided tape. You could even tape the two feet together to come up with a thicker base. :)

Oh, and don't bother with that coupon link... leads to some sketchy third party coupon site that requires you to install their software to print off coupons.... I don't think so tim.... :)

Anywise... up to you... just wanted to throw the gel inserts out there in case you wanted to get inventive.

I'll mention, that the mousepad does work. One of those rubbery soft ones! It helps my Iwaki... A LOT

I like the ideas so far. I don't have any old mouse pads lying around so I would probably have to buy one.

Will check out Home Depot tomorrow to see what they have.

Fun fun fun!!!
