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?
