How do I affix HDPE cutting board to metal skid shoes
I have a large piece of HDPE cutting board that was used in a restaurant, maybe 1/2"? 3/4"? thick.
How do I affix it to the bottom of my metal skid shoes?I
I was thinking of using a 1/4" bolt or screw head bolt, drilling two? or three? tight 7/32" holes through 2 layers and the skid shoes, countersinking the head, screwing it in, putting the nut on the inside of the skid shoe. I felt if the hole is tight, and I have to screw it, then when the bolt head wears off, and as the bolt itself wears, the threads will hold the HDPE material together.
Negatives/Problems to this idea please.
P.S. I'll be doing this to MY John Deere 826D first to see how it works out, not sure which one after, if any others at all, here I go again! Crying, LOL
