removing slats from rubber granule skins
« on: February 28, 2021, 02:34:34 PM »
Has anyone tried this? Did it work out OK?  Where the slats were cut off even with the skin surface, was there a loss of traction?

If this is possible, then our club would have a set of NADAC compliant contacts.

Hi Janice,

I did remove the slats from my dog walk this past summer. I used a grinder and it took about 4 hours. Here are pictures of when I did it. Iím happy with how it came out and it wasnít too bad of a job. I have had zero issues with it. Traction is not compromised. I did spray a light coat of paint over it to spruce it up.

When you say you used a "grinder", can you give me the a clear definition of which tool?  My husband has a grinder mounted on a tool bench in the garage.  I suspect this is not what you used <grin>.
