Title: A-Frame with Shipp belting
Post by: Jennifer P on June 28, 2020, 10:24:32 AM
My old A-Frame died in a storm.  So getting a new one. Saw in rulebook that Shipp belting is the way to go. Anyone know an A-Frame builder who uses that belting? I live in the central Arkansas area (so plan on paying for freight shipping like last time . . . .). Or how I would get it otherwise?

Jennifer, Tim Allen is in the KC area. He builds nice aluminum equipment. He can apply the belting for you, or you can easily put it on after you get the A.F. home. He has also been known to bring equipment with him to a trial to make the exchange. Contact me privately if you want more info.

Well I live in the hometown of Shipp Belting.  So you could come visit me (I have spare bedrooms) and pick it up at the same time - win/win.  And bring Sue with you!!   :)

I just ordered new contacts from a guy in Texas who will deliver within reason.  He tells me his grandkids live in Arkansas so I bet he will deliver up there.  We are in Oklahoma.  Supposed to arrive next week but I have heard only good things about him from all the Texas people (he has apparently built a lot of the equipment for the clubs down there).

I hopefully can personally attest to it in a week or so :)

Thanks ya'll - I'll be looking into this over the next month - I've always liked the rubber on the contacts at NADAC trials - so glad there are a couple of people "near" me who are making them that way.

Here's another vote for Mike and Paw Power Agility. We chose to cover our AFrame in rubber instead of the belting, and Mike did a great job. He also did a great job quickly repairing it when the wind tossed it and broke said new AFrame. Sigh.

Mike Press is good and is located in Athens, which is near Tyler, so Arkansas should be within range.  He also came back and repaired a dog walk that was tossed by the wind.

He seems good but don't trust his estimates on delivery :-P He promised me 4-6 weeks and we are coming up on 10 or 11 at this point.  But hopefully it's coming next week :)

My only recommendation is to find a dog walk with upside down 'L' style legs as opposed to 'A' Style legs.

The 'A' Style legs make it INCREDIBLY difficult to fit a tunnel under the ramp the way they're supposed to fit.
