    Looking for suggestions whether or not it's worth it to buy the inverted vee for a SS vee box. Pros and cons? Thanks

    I'll take that as a yes? No they're not standard. Just wanted to know whether or not they're strictly to prevent bridging or does it help prevent damage to conveyor at all.

    Mine came standard not often it bridge but when it does its easy get it flowing again
    Now a friend has one he removed his and his bridge and he said took forever to get it to flow again after that one time he put his back in

    I bought my SS Vbox back in the 90s maybe then it was a standard

    Std in some models, optional in others.
    Basically used to make life easier for either clutch or electric motor by keeping weight up off the chain.

    Thanks, I think I will buy one, or make one.
