    Our clup has a Remington 4100 trap machine that hasn't been used since 1991.
    All the rubber grommets in the machine have melted into goo.
    It worked when it was last used.

    Any suggestions as to how to get it back into working stsaus again?

    Regards

    If Remington can't supply parts, try Golden West Industries.

    Replacing the rollers and grommets should be easy enough, since they are all on the turret which just lifts off. Internals are all metal and hard plastic.

    If you stored it with the spring uncocked you should be good to go. If you store a 4100 it is good to unload the 3 clutch springs inside. Using the safe release swithch should do it.

    Very likely the clutch will be dry. Please lubricate before using and I believe Shydas Services may still have those grommets!!

    Mice like to build nests in these machines. The relay in the bottom controlls when the trap oscilates. It moves after the target is thrown. If the plunger in the relay has been corroded by mouse droppings, it will not oscilate. Moth balls will help with the mouse problem.

    I belive that someone had found a common supply for the gromets at one time. Either a medical supply place or try to Google it. Trap parts are getting to be so high it hardly is worth it to repair the old machines like the Winchester 1524.
