Your experience suggests to me that I should hook up an oscilloscope to measure bit timing, and then adjust the roller composition and diameter to arrive close to the correct bit length.

dug this up from the cctlk archive


It just says "norprene A-60-F" the outside.  It measures 3/8" I.D.

I think other's have said 7/16" i.d., but I could not find that.  I know I bought it from US Plastics and it's A-60-F.
You have to buy 10' but its not very expensive.
