    Can anyone assist as to where I can buy burn on patches ? Having used my last one a week ago I get
    the feeling as I hunt around that these have become a museum piece. I have the brass clamp but no
    more patches. John

    Sounds like you are going to have to cruise all the hardware and auto places.

    I stopped buying them when I moved to the mtb 13 years ago and my remaining stock seems to have
    crystalised (last used one 12 months ago).

    Do they work on modern tubes? I stopped using vulcanising patches in the 70's because they wouldn't
    adhere to the tubes in use then.

    That's what I'm finding as I look around Shepparton, so it's onto the glue !

    I use the currently available patches which use an adhesive in a tube and they seem to be quite
    successful. Apart from having the brass clamp, what advantages to the vulcanising patches give you?
