I remember along time ago doing pads one winter on an Oilfield Crawler, no heat in the Shed except for the 10 or so pounds of Rod!
Last ones I did was with a Miller Mig. In the photo's, it looks like you ground them afterwards? I've ground a few but generally when I get rolling at the right speed, the wire seems to flow evenly across the surface.
The Seal that replaces the D2 one is Part number 7B9968
Took all of the seals out of my rollers and I think I hit the bellows seal jackpot. I have 8 good reusable seals that just need cleaning and gaskets. The rubber is still nice and pliable and bonded to the metal well.
I believe it to be a D8 14A seal. I used 16 of them in my D2 rollers and they are a good Thing. Fp smith have hundreds of them. They are a perfect substitute for the original seal.

"I also joined a year ago. had been on here a couple of times as a non-member and found the info very helpful so I got a one year subscription (not very expensive at all) to try it out. I really like all the resources on here so I just got a three year. I think its a very small price for what you can get out of this site."
