I found some adhesive pads that are normally used for furniture to protect
the floor. They seemed to be about the right thickness. I used a leather
punch as you wrote and punched a small circle which I attached. Worked
perfectly. Now the drive reads correctly. Perhaps the felt cloth I
previously used was simply too thin.
