Wider is fine as you cut shapes out of it. You may be happy with grey rather than black though black usually looks best. 1mm thickness is essential.

SP40 Black silicone rubber tube, internal diameter 4mm, wall thickness 1mm

It needs to have an external diamater of 6mm and you’ll have problems if the wall diameter is not 1mm – the tube will either kink too much or not have sufficient space inside to run the wires.

ATK606: Cork disc 18mm

Nitrile bonded self adhesive cork disc 18mm diameter x 1.5mm thick

  • Manufacturer: Various
  • Product ID: Various

This disc provides most of the friction when rotating a small lever such as a flaps lever. Nitrile bonded is preferred as normal cork is prone to squeaking.

Supplier Links

I found a supplier on eBay in the UK. There should be other similar suppliers around the world otherwise purchase some 1.5mm nitrile bonded cork with self adhesive backing and cut out an 18mm disc.

Try to avoid normal cork but if its your only option you could try it. A thickness of 2mm is often too much for certain uses so be sure to find 1.5mm thickness.
