Started working on this. The turn table was stuck So the motor run rubbing a gouge in the
wheel that turns the turn table . It is a metal wheel with rubber on it . What would be best way to fix this?
Has anyone run upon this before.
Thanks Denver. Rolling Eyes

Definitely have seen this a few times. The rubber is probably hard as a rock too. West-Tech services can redo your wheel but it is expensive.

If it isn't too bad I have successfully cut rubber from a tire tube and contact cemented it on. May need a couple layers. A thick rubber band also works however none of this will hold up to daily use. If you just use it occasionally this could be a cheap fix depending how bad of a flat spot you have.

You could use Rtv to fill in the gap. It will take some work, but you could let the RTV dry the use sand paper or knife or file to smooth out the RTV to be concentric. In other words spin the wheel while dressing the rubber portion to become smoothly rounded. Wink

I did what you both advised . Filled in the gouge bought a big bag of rubber bands for 1.50 . If one wears out change it like a spare tire.
Oh on the motor the shaft that turns the big wheel is it suppose to have rubber on it too? If so it must of rubbed off when it got stuck. Rolling Eyes
