    Hello. I am looking for felt padding used to go around the perimeter of a large (24″ long x 6″ wide) rectangular dial glass. The padding is felt and is 3/8″ wide x 1/8″ thick. I require 6 feet of the stuff. I have tried all of the local fabric and picture mounting services but to no avail. Any help would be appreciated in this search. Thank you.

    Hi,

    What about the adhesive weather strips used as replacements for doors and windows ?
    Lots of different types and sizes as most hardware stores.

    Good luck

    I have used a type of felt that comes in squares 8″X10″ , and I believe I got it at Micaeles. [hobby fabrics]
    The stuff I got came in several colors and it has adhesive on the back.
    It is not as long as you need but you can cut strips and also put them on top of each other,
    to get the size, width and length that you need.
    I have used it on many glass dials that require a padded material between the glass and the chassis.

    The brown one in the photos is actually black.

    There is a site that is called
    wintechint.com that carries this type of product.
