    Default what do you do with the crumbly shit from the covers?

    the "damping" foam that is on the vf- head's sheet-metal pans has turned to a crumbly goo.
    what have you used to replace it? has to be bad... full of oil-mist and grit, and inside the internals
    of the machine... the machine is already a BIG BASS DRUM , and i'm tired of taking the covers off .

    what can i use to damp the loud-ass schoolbus ?

    how about the stuff custom/hot rod car guys use,can't think of the name at the moment. Thin self stick and foil covered. Speedway Motors etc. should have it.
    ON edit ! Dyna Mat is one brand. A friend of mine said try car audio shops as the use a similar product but cheaper.

    When I read the title of the thread, my first thought was, I let the maid clean it up.

    Gross, but funny.

    I wonder if sticky back foam strips would work to break up harmonics enough to work?

    The car audio option promising good but McMaster has a whole range of adhesive backed foams and some of these may be more oil resistant than others which would help here.

    My haas tm-1 has no acoustic damping anywhere! (Big drum!)

    I went to the car audio shop and got a decent quality stuff. It was rectangular shaped, 12x24 ish. A 1/8" thick tar like adhesive with a thick aluminum foil on one side.
    It worked very very well to kill tin ringing, insanely sticky applied with a heat gun.

    Was a little expensive but I got them down 40% telling them it was for industrial application. Lol

    I run in a house garage so every decibel killed it great!

    There is most likely an automotive OEM resource, available at a parts counter.


    oem dampening sheet - Google Search

    Yep, thought so.....

    3M is a vendor.

    sorted it out with some of the wife's 3/8" hard yoga mats and contact cement (free) . it will
    eventually fail ... ok. the car soundproofing stuff was insanely expensive , and very thin . at this age of the
    mill, i'll be taking the pans off at least once every two years.... no big deal.
