    Jerry, Some one on the west coast had talked about dipping the old one in something. I was never able to get an answer as to what he/they did. Hopefully somebody will have the answer for you here. Off to start my new POI work, LOL. Good luck, Bob

    Jerry,
    Go to home builders or Lowe's and get the rubber coating material they use to coat plier handles and such.You dip it one time and you are ready to go. Be sure to clean the old stuff off the elevator completely.It comes in quart or pint cans.

    That is the stuff tool grip rubber. That works great I have done ours at least 3 times over the past 6 years. We have an extra set and keep them in rotation.

    Do bad things happen if you run them bare? D Winter

    Doc, The biggest problem is when they start wearing and sometimes flake or begin to peel away from the metal. At that point you can or should peel the rubber off but now you have a slippery surface that makes it harder to hold the target where it should be. We have the same issue on our Beo-Mat skeet machines. I believe that Shyda's will trade old elevators and give you refurbished ones for a reasonable fee. I'm looking forward to trying Terry's solution as you don't have to ship anything, just have a spare or two to work with. Shoot often while we can, Bob
