Troybuilt Skid Shoes are Too Soft
The polymer skid shoes that came with my 2960xp are too soft. Basically, when I set them the washer depresses into the plastic (I'm careful not to over tighten) and they tend to slide up and I loose my 1/8" spacing. Does anyone make a harder polymer shoe that will fit my TB?
Could you use larger washers, to spread the load out more? And/or maybe 2 washers stacked, so they are stiffer, and don't bend as much. Bending would relax pressure on the skid. To take the idea further, you could add a metal plate, with holes drilled to match the mounting bolts locations. The metal plate would help spread the force out even more across the plastic skid, hopefully reducing the amount that the plastic crushes over time.
