Self adhesive "flocking" for rings

My main imaging scope has rings that have some self adhesive flocking on the inside. This appears to have started to come away. Does anyone know where I can get some of this?

Cheers

Malcolm

I use the sticky back felt used for furniture sliders , its cheap and comes in many sizes from Bunnings . These are soft and strong , greyish/brown in colour.

The best one for rings is the squares , about 150mm x 150mm and just cut strips the width of your rings , put as many layers on as necessary to make the rings tight on the tube .

Hope this helps .

Brian.

That should be felt, not flocking (too thin). As per Brian, or you can buy felt from Spotlight and glue it - PVA works fine.

Spotlight has A4 size sheets of self adhesive felt. I used two layers of that for my tube rings. Works well. I went for white so it doesnt stain the ota.
