How often do you replace your rubber ring kits on your machines?

I believe its quite unsanitary to reuse rubbers.

edit- jus messin, when they look about to shed shavings on the PF they are gone!

Depends on which rubber it is. Most rubbers can be rotated and/or inverted to extend their life. You can also rub them with WD40 to clean them up. Take a close look at a routed machine. You will probably notice that the flipper rubber was rotated when the flipper tips got worn.

As & when required!

The answer is "When they're worn out."

Rubber cleans up nice with Novus 2. Remove the rubber, add Novus 2, pull the rubber through a rag several times in a looping manner ... Looks great.

Keep wd40 away from pinballs!

I got a story about wd40 and pinball machines. Man it is to late to tell that story. Long one, don't know where to start.

I wouldn't EVER put WD-40 in a pin, anywhere.

I use this stuff to clean rubbers, it works amazing. Any dirt just wipes right off.
