  • ballwheel strips & hot glue

    what do ya'll use for ballwheels we use carpet strips and very rarely have a ball return problem caused by the ballwheels but i tried something new the other day using hot glue on the back of the carpet strip and slapped it right on the ballwheel and 5 minutes later was ready to be used not the usual length of time have to wait on the contact cement to dry

    keep us posted on how long it stays on, and what the ball wheel looks like when it does fall off.

      So??? How does it work? Does it stay on the Ball Wheel pretty good? We use retarder carpet cut into strips and use contact cement. We also singe the carpet strip, mostly the edges, to help prevent freying. It works pretty good for us.
