Subject: [CR]Source for blue "jewels" for Cobalto brakes

Charles Nighbor was enquiring about where to get these blue jewels for Cobalto brakes. Any major hobby store will sell plastic beads in a cabochon shape. You might have to buy a whole package of assorted ones to get the cobalt colored ones (maybe $2.50). They will be a little large and you have to file down the edges (I use a nail file) until they are small enough to use. You can tell the replacement jewels on these brakes by looking at the edges. If they have a filed off edge, the jewels have been replaced. I Super Glue them on...never had one fall off yet.
