    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.

    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.
