Thanks Bob, Is there anything special that i need to know? How thick should it be or does that really matter? What purpose does that material do anyway? Is it some sort of cushion for the needle? I know it is probably dumb questions to most, I just dont know about these things having never delt with them, and being mostly self taught leaves allot of gaps in my knowledge.
Thanks for helping.
