GREAT video Jedd!
Full of valuable information!
I was wondering if you've ever measured the differences with FatMan's and 2nd Gen Blobs with a flexible tape?
When I owned a Blob Clone I compared it to a Blob50 by measuring their circumference instead of trying to eyeball
the mic for the sides. BTW, they do make a micrometer that has extended calipers for measuring wider surfaces.
Thanks for sharing your immense knowledge of Blobs!!!
I can get that measurement. But the calipers you mention were like $100. No way I am buying those.
No problem there! Just go to amazon.com and do a search on a brake drum resetting gauge and you'll find
plastic models for 20 bucks! When you see a picture it will be self explanatory. After getting the width with your
gauge you simply measure the distance between the 2 sides with your existing dial calipers and presto you have
an extremely accurate way to measure the widths on these Blobs. You may be surprised how much difference there
is with you eye-balling it versus getting an accurate measurement.
If 20 bucks is too steep you can buy some extensions for your existing dial calipers for a few dollars from an engineering
supply store. They work well also! If something is worth measuring, it's worth measuring correctly IMO.
