So I know that the feed rollers are the weak link on the 2030’s. I bought one several months ago and I really like it. It surely is a workhorse. I have noticed lately though that sometimes the boards get stuck and I have to push/pull them through.
The feed rollers looked ok at a glance so I decided to take them out and look at them and here is what I found:
I think at some point someone had the rollers recovered but instead of urethane or solid rubber it looks to be like there are several rubber rings glued to the roller. The problem is that some of them have come loose, as seen here:
So I was wondering if there was any kind of glue that I could use to hold down the rubber. The rubber itself is in very good condition and I know western roller does a great job, but I can’t see spending that much money if some glue will work. Especially since I’m still in school and it’s just a hobby that my wife thinks takes up too much time.
The good news is that everything else looks and functions great. Fantastic machine.
