I just found a little surplus rubber tubing, normally used for Pathè Soundboxes. Turns out it fits perfectly to replace the old rubber flange in my Meltrope 2. With one pice of rubber available on ebay, you could do at least a dozen backs. Thought this might be of use for some.

Good to know that, Thanks! I have a length of rubber tube that I use on my Pathé soundboxes, I'll try it on the Meltrope.

And for future reference, here is someone who sells replacement rubber for the Meltrope and others: https://www.ebay.com/itm/EMG-EXPERT-DAVEY-HMV-GRAMOPHONE-REPLACEMENT-RUBBER-PART/162789262275?hash=item25e6ff03c3:g:yKoAAMXQCtlRUw2O
