    A couple of years ago at the Indiana State Shoot I bought a set of comb spacers from one of the vendors. The spacers came in a package of about 12 or 14, and there were six or seven different thicknesses and each set of 2 of the same thickness were a different color. They make it very easy to alter your comb setup.

    A couple of the guys at my club would like to get a set, but I have no idea who I got them from and in fact don't recall seeing them at any of the other shoots that I have attended since then.

    Does anyone have an idea of who might sell spacers like this?

    Thanks - Scott

    Curt -

    I went to both Lowes and Home Depot today, and nobody in the place could find what I was asking for, nor did anyone even have any idea what I was talking about. All they had were nylon washers, metal washers, plastic washers - but nothing that were color-coded based on their thickness.

    I also checked the Yellow Pages and did a Google search for Etc - apparently we don't have one of those in my area.

    Local Ralph's Supermarket in So-Cal carries Ritt dye. Wait until lady/ladies of the home are gone before use.

    Scott, You might try McMaster-Carr in Elmhurst. Grainger might also be able to help. Dave

    Check your local hardware store for rubber washers. My local True Value store has various sizes. I got the exact size for the posts on my adjustable comb
