Some of you have already been very kind in advising me about my ongoing FMQ woes.
My continuing search for a solution brought me to a clip from Leah Day. I can't find it again but this is another clip from Leah with the same technique, without showing the machine working: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=APD6s7PwoqU
Oh! Found it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uwbNPgnP8r4
Is this the Holy Grail?!!!! Stopping the foot from hopping and setting the height with a rubber band?
Any voices of experience much appreciated. Please do share.....
