Rear Spring Thrust Buttons

Post by stuartb » Fri Jun 16, 2017 7:30 pm

Any idea what the thrust buttons that sit in the indents in the ends of the leaves of the rear springs to reduce friction between the leaves are made of?

It feels like hard rubber, mine are in need of replacement and I wondered what I could make some out of.

I wondered about Nylon or Teflon, any ideas ?

Thankyou Stuart

Sunbeam Specialties here in the states sells them so I'm sure one of your suppliers in the U.K. also sells them.
