  • Idea For Sur-Piks

    I'm not having any current problems right now,however I was thinking about something.1st of all I have the sur-piks that branch into a "Y".I noticed that the underneath of all my leather straps are dirty and very,very smoooth.Again--I'm having no problems.But I was wondering...Should I clean the underneath of the leather straps and maybe rough it up a bit with a wire brush so it gets more friction on the balls as they come up??...or should I just leave well enough alone until I actually have trouble?

    GMan, I hope you don't mind:

    I borrowed this from another thread.

    TheGMan143 originally posted:

    "Clean the lift belt with alcohol (sand it lightly with 150 grit if needed) Scuff the leather track where the balls ride on it with a stiff wire brush, then wipe it with alcohol/isopropanol. Blow out all the dust and fuzz that settled on the motor and tracks."

    Best advice I usual!

      Don, same story here, we have the Sure-Pik's with the "Y". They run real good for us, I dont get to as often as I'd like but I do try to clean the leather straps with a wire brush whenever I get a chance. Helps a lot when the oil does decide to cause the mechanics some headaches [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif[/img]
      All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/

        I used to just reverse the strap so that the rough side made contact with the balls. Every second day i used to wash the belts and straps, very few problems if you do that.

          I agree with Sports Central, seeing as he also works at my center he suggested to me that we turn the straps over so the rough side is down and that was about 6 weeks ago i guess and only had 2 or 3 underlanes since

            Although one idea does come to mind as far as Sure-Stucks go........ it kind of involves 10 gallons of gasoline.... a zippo.... and im sure you all get the rest of it!!!!!
