  • Wicks

    Digging through parts at one center. Old Lanewalker (hopper). My main center has a phoenix wick and I'm salvaging what I can. The walker has these wicks in it that look like foam. The only wick I'm familiar with are the white compressed ones. Walker center has some spares of the white ones but I'm wondering about the quality of the foam ones and if they are still good. The center was closed for a couple years. The wicks are saturated with oil and don't seem to be deteriorating. Also wondering if it is a good idea to flip the wicks around to have the other side pressing against the roller for longer life. Then walker center has a nice Kustodian Ion and the walker was pretty much scrap when I found it.

    Failed safety course.Question #1:In case of fire what steps do you take? Apparently 'Friggin long ones!" is the wrong answer.

    The foam wicks were made my Lane Masters. I had a set of them once, I didn't care for them but that was just me. If you suck the oil out using a shop-vac the wicks should be reuseable. Yes flipping them around to use an unused area of the wick is fine. I'm still a fan of the traditional white wool wicks.
