Thanks Tom, I wish it was that easy. Billy Bags has been out of business for over two years. No authorized dealers. I am sure they outsourced for their cone aluminum feet on their products, but I have no idea who they used.
I've checked Amazon, Google, eBay and CableCo and Mapleshade. Nothing looks like or has the size of the cone feet they used that I can find so far.
Suggest you speak with Herbiesaudiolab.net at 210-530-8680 whether they can supply their "threaded stud glider" in the thread and length dimension suited to your application, This is usable on either bare floor or carpeted floor.
Very long-standing vendor who has helped many systems, minus original threaded spikes (even when the original manufacturer thought spikes essential).
What was your eventual solution, if any, to your search for proper 1/4-20 isolation cone feet for your Billy Bags racks? I too have such a need, having somehow misplaced the envelope in which I put my own four feet "for safekeeping!!" during a recent home renovation. Since Billy Bags is out of business I'm now desperate to find a suitable equivalent or replacement.
Did you eventually get your own need satisfied from some vendor? Please share.
Well, after doing a bit of research myself, I ended up buying four "threaded stud gliders", 1/4"-20, 1.5" long, from Herbiesaudio.net. We'll see when they arrive if they do the trick.
Then, today, I got a phone call back from Pierre at Mapleshade, to whom I'd also sent an email inquiry about isolation feet. He's a serious experienced perfectionist professional, and advised me that their brass "threaded heavyfeet" footers are what I want. He also said that the "gliders" from Herbie's are very inferior if vibration isolation is the objective, and that point shape is the far superior proper design. He also said his brass feet are much superior to the original steel Billy Bags feet.
I ended up ordering four of the "threaded thick carpet heavyfoot" brass feet with 1/4"-20 stud (for the pre-threaded Billy Bags rack). These are about 3x the price of the Herbie's gliders, but I suspect they are what I will be keeping and will be returning the Herbie's feet.
In any case, I think I've now solved my problem of the misplaced original Billy Bags feet (although I still am holding out hope that they may actually be in one of the cartons in my big pile where everything was supposed to be placed.
In the same envelope with the Billy Bags feet I also placed the six isolation pins for under my two floor-standing Thiel CS3.6 speakers. So those, too, are currently misplaced and presumed lost. But fortunately Thiel is still in business and I was able yesterday to order a complete replacement set of six Thiel pins, so that crisis is also now resolved.
Both cases closed.
