Lenny, my problem isn't isolated to one Turbolid.  I have three Turbolids
and I've tried them on several different harps (combs).  Same problem.  And,
I did try applying several layers of micropore to the reed plates where the
'lids meet just inside the "lip" of the combs.  It helped, but didn't solve
the problem completely. Apparently, I'm much more sensitive to leakage than
other more satisfied Turbolid users.

Anyhow, thanks for the advice, Lenny.
