Hi,

When I started using indie twins I bought a pair of the buddy bands and they were fine for what I wanted. The only problem I did have with them was that I found it difficult to get the cylinders to sit evenly about the central axis of the back plate.

I was then given some stainless bands by a good friend who visits here infrequently and began to use these instead. The cylinders now sit a lot more centrally on the plate and it's so much easier to set up quickly.

One thing to definitely consider is the potential for a manifold in the future - for that you will definitely need the steel bands.

HTH

Hi Bob,

It can be done. The best way is to take 4 stainless steel sliders with you. The best way to describe itwould be:

Strap through hole, into slider, through slider and back through hole. This will stop the cam band sliding back out of the hole.

HTH or indeed makes sense,

Noel
