  • Finding a good pin curtain

    Does anyone still make the heavy-duty curtain with the thick rubber (smooth finish) and the plastic sleeve insert where the rod goes?? We have tried ordering these from the local guys and keep getting sent Vantage poo.

    Not that the Vantage curtain is horrible but I have needed to do patching on the sides of these curtains where holes develop. Remember, some of the curtains hang a little different on our 8230s (lower) than the 70s and those rubber blocks really don't help protect the curtain from behind sometimes.

    Cut an inch off the rubber protection pad so it does not stay in contact with the curtain at all times.....otherwise it rubbs a hole in it.

          Good luck. Ever since they outlawed the good chemicals everything is garbage.

                I have vantage curtain on my machine for 6 years last. AMF's have to be replace every year or two. Vantage still going strong. You have to let them know you want vantage or else they will send you amf's. The only time I have to do a cushion is when the facing goes out. If they could only reinforce the facing without putting two layers on the out side where it wears. I can no longer get vantage because AMF says only to order from them. In the long run its more expensive to go with amf because I have to change it more

                  I use the old carpets I take out of the pit. They last FOREVER.

                  Simple as tracing around you old curtain. You can sew or pop rivet the top. Local shoe repair shop sew's mine for 5.00

                  But pop rivets hold real good too.
