    Check out these photos I took today next to a rule,it looks like a quarter of an inch slack,and three eighths under 'worn' tension,this might help.

    Make sure you get a mohair girth as the nylon and synthetic versions will not accept dye. Mohair will.

    I have some original strands cut the real 30+ year old girths,If you like,I could send you a couple of strands(free of charge) so you can see/compare the real thing.

    Thanks .. that would be most helpful .. the postage from Australia to the UK might be a bit pricey though

    No charge Randy.............I'll just put 'em in an envelope,and get my dad's business to pay for it.It'd only be a couple of bucks,anyway.
    I'll send a dozen or so,so you can share them around,if you want to.
    It seems a shame to throw the left over pieces away,as ppl might want to match up the colour correctly.
    I hate the competetive crap that goes on here,aren't we SUPPOSED to help each other out?
    I offered these free on TDH,but i think ppl were suspicious.....lol...........silly buggers.........

    Just pm your address and I'll get 'em in the post.

    That is really good of you .. I really appreciate it

    Being able to match everything up will be so much easier .. might even be able to make one instead with refference material like that
