Hello everyone!

Anyone knows where to get replacement for the pads under the mouse? Mine's quite worn out and makes moving the mouse very hard with the additional friction.

Something like this.

Anyone got any idea?

The tape is apply to entire mouse surface or just the four corners? Can roughly say which shops(ie which floor) in sim lim tower sells it?

just cut a small piece that is big enough to cover the 4 little feet


5 years back i used to pay $18 to get a small strip of mouseskatez from USA
http://www.mouseskatez.com

then later found out that you can buy 1 whole roll from sim lim tower at less than that amount :angry:

try the shop at 3rd floor which is directly in front of the esculator when you go up

The shop is Kaichin. The escalator going to the 3rd storey hasn't changed it directions since I started going to SLT 5+ years back.

The brand of tape is Nitto Denko. It's in a yellow box.
Do buy the tape that's 10mm wide or so.
The roll I bought (see picture) is the wider type which costs $20+. I bought it because the former wasn't in stock at the time (about 4 years back).

hahah it does change directions every month. and they play the same oldies over the PA system everyday on infinite repeats :bsmilie: I used to work there for several months quite sometime ago.

kaichin is the one with the fish (marlin) as the logo right?

buying a roll is kinda overkill for me since I only need like.. a bit... :think:

Funny.. I've not experienced the escalator changing directions. Maybe it's because the escalators are always in the same direction when I go there.. LOL..

Where do ya live? I can spare you some if you live in the east and can come down to my place.. LOL.. As you can see, I've not used the tape much in 4 years... Maybe it's because I change mice too often..
The only mouse I've always gone back to using is my Mouseman ball mouse which has since conked out. The other mouse I'd really love to buy but can't is the Razor Boomslang 2000. Out of production since 3 years back...
Really regret not buying it when it was available locally despite it's hefty price-tag of $200+.

You were in Hardwarezone around the same era as I was.. You should know the mentality there.. When I got around to buying the tape, almost every piece was wiped out and the price inflated till hell freezes over. Only left with 2 of the wide tapes. One of which you can see in the picture..

Your avatar hasn't changed much since HWZ days.. LOL..

I will bring all the mice that i have and show you how to apply the tape to their feet :sweatsm:

wah lao, u all damn wasteful leh, use the high end tape to tape the mouse, this tape is use for sealing machine 1, btw if u guys wanna do MO, i got the contacts... ;p

btw the inner layer is actually not good for the skin, its glass cloth, just for your info, and y it doesn't stick well is because the adhesive is able to withstand 180-220degreeC of heat... (told by nitto denko's guy in japan)

anyway, the stock i have is special cut 1, so can't sell u guys, hence not for sale...
