I agree. Fiberglass is fine. people have it in their attic and walls. Maybe, if you were manufacturing the stuff, it'd be harmful, but not as a little pad like you have. It's just itchy as hell. The 'itching powder' you could buy as a kid was just strands of fiberglass insulation. It does look a lot better now you have it covered though.WOW what a discussion over a 14"x14" piece of insulation.
Any way like I said doing just the feet is not cutting it and I would venture a guess that for a lot of people this may also be the case.
I now have to consider that old saying : What is the definitions of insanity? Doing the same thing over and over and over again and expecting a different result.
I am sick of it so I had to think outside the box. Putting pad's on the feet was NOT working NO matter what kind of pad used Putting it as far away as I could also did not work.
I was looking around online and seen where someone used sponge under there TT and some put them in sand and this is what got me thinking, Why not a pillow? The pillow worked but man it's too bulky and I can't keep the TT level!
So I thought what about a pad of insulation? It's 3" thick I can cut a small square the size of the TT body. So I did just that.
Since this is working I am NOT going to change it but I will update you on it. I have it covered , Wrapped up really in a cloth and set the TT back onto the pad I made.
See thing is for testing a piece of material I think it was safe you make it sound like I was waving it around or playing with it or some how the slightest little movement of air around it is some how going to do some adverse thing.
I thank you for your concern and your well thought out reasons why not to do what I am, But I am okay.
And really if this helps ANYONE that has been suffering without end like me to solve this issue, I am happy.
Also note like I said this is the second material I have tested (Pillow was first).
I'm looking at some foam too but it needs to be a square piece 14"X14" must be "soft" enough to "cradle the TT in a "bed".
Oh I have a very nice but cheap Denon DP297 TT it only cost's $150.00 Bucks. No plans on getting anything "better" I happy this one is doing the job finally perfectly and that is all I need.
Also this did not cost me a thing and it is out of material I have in home and on hand. Free is a very good price, IMHO.
I never really thought of this but that sounds amazing! See it's things like this that make me happy.
so now here is what it looks like.
