Re: Putting rubber skids on a Rogue Monster Yoke

^^I did this with the HDPE cutting board scraps off ebay. I went with 1" thick disks and drilled partly through them and bolted them to the bottom. It looks like this... (WFS)

I tried just using the 4x4's by themselves but it smelled like a forest fire and made me want to puke even more than normal.

The disks wear down fairly reasonably. I'll probably go through a set a year. But it was about $20 for probably 2 full sets worth. I'd like something a little more robust but haven't figured out anything better yet. They work great but I'd like it if they were just a touch more durable.
