I can’t find any recent info here about the 2040 and was wondering if anybody still has one in their shop ? In the next few days I’m going to look at one that was supposed to have been rebuilt a couple years ago. Since rebuild it hasn’t had more than 2 or 3 boards thru it so it should be as new.
My question is – just how long would I expect the rollers to last and is there a maintenance procedure to follow ?
