                    Thank you Sir.

                    I wish we had them but sadly no. Several others use them and King uses them and he says they are wonderful. Its a great idea and think of it this way, you know what happens with a sloppy pin elevator and as they age and things wear it can get worse. Even with age and wear and ringtubes that are not round anymore with this kit it does not matter, the spring tension always keeps the rollers in full contact with the ringtube which means the pinwheel stays tighter and reduces problems. So even with the great reviews on here it just makes sense to put these on...the elevator was not designed to be a sloppy piece of **** and this kit should make it nice and tight like it once was.

                      Is the lower pin wheel tensioner available in Europe/ The Netherlands, would love to test them. What about the steel or plastic rollers. Dont like the plastic ones use only steel rollers for the upper. Plastic on the lowers but with more tension on them they will last less long IMO.

                        We never got a chance to try the Stahl's lower roller kits. I just wish they came up with them sooner. Cuz we had already remedied the swaying pinwheel issue by ovalling out the hole in the lower mouting plates and adding a washer on either side of the stud to sinch them up to the ring tube. Ovalling out the hole was a bit of a pain, but it it kept the night guy busy. And total cost was next to nothing. Either way, you can install new rollers on top, and run your older worn out rollers on the bottom. Cuz the bottom rollers have no effect on the height of the pinwheel. I'll run the lowers 'til they disintegrate. We have tried plastic, but I prefer the metal ones, only cuz the plastic rollers get loose on the shaft before the groove actually wears out. I don't mind the metal shavings on the floor much, cuz it tells you right away that it needs attention.

                          You need to grease the ring tube monthly with the kits on

                              Get rid of the cup...use grease and a foam paint brush - I lay on the floor and put it on
