    Replacement for Jon's Generic Seal Repair Kit

    A couple of years back I purchased a Generic Seal Repair Kit from Jon (Interslice)
    The kit is not longer available and I wonder if anybody knows of any other source with similar product.
    Thanks!

    I had a look around and also couldn't find a generic kit, which is what I need as I fiddle with all kinds of cameras and really just want a general stock of sealing foam thicknesses, felt, etc.
    Perhaps Jon is a member?

    I have a few acres of 1mm self adhesive black foam if anyone wants any. We have it 1 metre wide on rolls.

    I've always used sticky felt with stiffened back from michaels... Never had a seal failure or light leak... Plus it's 1 dollar a sheet which is more than enough for 10 or so cameras

    I would see if you could contact Jon. Very nice guy to work with when I bought my seal kit.

    I believe he no longer sells a generic kit, someone was buying them & reselling the little critters.

    As I understand it, they were buying his generic kits and then "re-purposing" the materials into new kits with plagiarized copies of his camera specific instructions, and then selling those kits as their own.

    If you call John I am sure he can put one together for ya?

    Otherwise....

    Micro Tools has an assortment kit for $25 that hs a couple sheets of each thickness.

    I would contact Jon, he made up a kit for a Minolta AL-F for me no problem. Otherwise Micro Tools is also a good suggestion, I've recently ordered from them and was quite pleased.

    Thanks Paul,
    I already contacted him and he explained a problem with some guy reselling his kit. I told him I would not mind signing any "not for resell" agreement since most of my cameras are not part of the kits.
    Would you mind sending the link to Micro tools ?
