It’s been a long time since anyone has written but I am hoping to get a reply from you folks out there in “lumber land”.
Does any one know the outside diameter(OD) of the rubber feed rollers on the a kit a 2030? Can someone go out and measure for me?
I had mine recovered locally and the guy took the OD off the original rollers in an undamaged area. Now, months later after finally getting it running, I’m realizing the rollers might be too big, preventing the blade from contacting the wood.
Any help would be much appreciated!
My two cents on reassembly, use “Anti Seize” when putting your bolts back to prevent the mixed metals from seizing. Its a bear getting some of those bolts out after 20 or 30 years. Be careful not to over torque when using it.
Thank you in advance,
