Thanks Jim. I was under the impression that the major problem with the drag washer is it's relatively small size, and that the actual spindle would have to be lengthened (along with the pins) in order to place a larger washer inside the housing; I had actually thought of making a washer from a self-lubricating plastic material that we use in manufacturing. It's fairly easy to work with. I'm willing to try cork, though. Any suggestions as to how I would go about making the washer, and where would I go to get the cork material? TIA for the suggestions and help, I appreciate it!
