  1. My family all pitched in and bought me a Clay Boss wheel for my birthday about a month ago, and it's never quite felt right. It's incredibly difficult to center on. I've used different bats - hydrobat, universal bat system - and it still poses problems. I've completely leveled the wheel head, but the wheel table still isn't level. When its rotating, I can hear a low womp womp womp sound and feel a surge or wobble. I've also already tried the clay ball with the needle tool trick and the needle tool appeared to be rotating fine. The company isn't being a huge help in finding out whats wrong with my brand new wheel, so I'm hoping to get some suggestions and advice here. Thanks!
  2. So this older shimpo 21 is developing some side to side play and becoming more noisy under load. I've serviced the bearing on a 70's rk(2?) and this looks a bit simpler but before i start removing things i figured i'd throw a picture out and see what advice might be available. This pulley and the wheel head will wiggle The other wheel needs service as well but i'm uncertain the exact model number. I found one video showing an RK2 with the round red and green on off buttons as well as direction toggle but every other picture i find does not show the on/off buttons so I'm unsure of the model number. If someone can confirm the model number for the 70's rk with round red and green on/off buttons I'll be more comfortable finding a bearing part number to match. I know i wrote them down some where but unfortunately not in my little black book. any help or advice is appreciated
