    Just like the rubber ones...just plastic ;)

    I know they last a while not too sure how long but I heard one guy say they last longer than steel. I need them for box ends I made, I am affraid rubber ones may chatter

    all I can say is look around Look around LOOK AROUND for prices they varied approx. $100 from the different places I looked. They dont come predrilled dont ask me why thats an extra $100 but as long as you keep the old one you should be able to line up the holes. For us they last about2-3 years
