Neoprene Substitute

Unread postAuthor: Counterstriker » Sat Jul 26, 2008 11:36 am

Last night I was out for about an hour and a half going from store to store looking for neoprene for my small coaxial.. No one seems to have it..I even went to an Beer distributor for Beer Coolies and they were out.. Any idea what to use? I used Inner tube before but it's not stiff so it won't seal correctly. Any Idea? Thanks :)

Get a rubber washer. I got one from a radiator cap. Also, a tub stopper should work.

No , I am not sure about the rubber type material because it tends to be to stiff to seal the barrel of for a small cannon like this one.

How about butchering a neoprene pot holder?

I hear some mice pads work as long as they aren't porous.
And do you mean a 4.5 inch barrel?

Go to a tire shop and ask if they have any scrap tractor inner tubes. If you can't make a trip there then look for stuff like floormats, or the mats you put in the car. Apparently you can use leather if it's fairly smooth.
