Started working the mechanical aspect of my DIY EQ mount upgrade to add RA tracking. I decided to tackle the worm gear and clutch assembly first since it's a self-contained unit. I've acquired socket head bolts and die springs for the clutch plate to provide compression to the clutch assembly, and now I'm deliberating on the clutch material itself. I've read suggestions on CN for everything from cork to leather to plastic.
What are your suggestions for ideal slip clutch pad material? (It will be a dry clutch)
I'm considering sheet cork cut to size such as one of the two products below:
EDIT: Forgot to mention the space between the gear face and clutch plate (for the pad material) is 1/8"
