    Cat tail down insulation: anyone?

    Hey Gang,

    I am thinking of making a TQ using cat tail down in place of goose down insulation. Has anyone tried this, or have some knowledge of this type of application? What can I say, I'm too much of a cheap ******* to pay for goose down.

    Give a shout out if you have any thoughts or ideas.

    Cheers

    There is already a thread that delves into that in quite a lot of detail.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.
