    Chopping boards used as isolation platforms have been recommended before. But it is always good to be reminded of these 'economical' solutions. Thanks for the reminder.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Wilcos sell bamboo chopping boards. Two different sizes and easy to put your preferred spikes, cones etc. under.

    The article, if read in full, discloses that sandwiching two of the Ikea Aptitlig boards together, with the GROOVED sides facing and supplemented with ball-bearings of a certain dimension (still, ceramic, brass - whatever takes your fancy) placed in the grooves, s an interesting and enhanced development for an insubstantial outlay (about 50 should do it)!
