    I got rubber on my Air-flo and it's good, Been on there for about 4 years now and no issues. It won't bend or get deformed or rot and it throws just as good.

    Well,I went to the parts store today and got everything I need to rebuild the chute on my sander EXCEPT the spinner!I got a brand new shaft,sprocket,pillow block bearings and chain with a breaker for $208.00.I thought it would be much more than that.If any of you guys know where I can buy a POLY spinner let me know.I need a 12" diameter spinner.I also need a control box if anyone has one for sale.My sander is a SS Air-flo with a 10.5 Briggs motor.:mechanic:

    Why do you want poly ? I would just get whatever your parts guy has in stock or can order for you.

    I wanted poly for the same reasons you have it on yours.Flexible and won't rust.He just didn't have one in stock.I can for sure wait until the fall to get one.:mechanic:
