    For its more common use it is put on a sand bag, thick folded cloth, or blanket to dampen the noise. Dennis.
    Ah yes. Thanks Dennis. I've got one but still can't think how i(used to) refer to it .

It could equally be filled with pumice or I can use whatever block suits the job in hand. Before I was given the spare bench block I used to use a soldering block alone and that in itself was heavy enough to sufficiently weight it down but I do try and be a bit safely conscious
    Brilliant Hack...

    Just a quick update - I bought a revolving base stand from Ebay for 4 and nabbed a bit of discarded wood and it works perfectly. Such a result! When I need a new bit of kit, I'll post on here first to see if there's a way to improvise in the future.

    Thank you all

    Sue
