Thatís one reason I think a lot of people have bad opinions of the rubber ball. If the radius ball is already worn the rubber wonít fit as tightly and youíll probably still get unwanted movement of the radius arm. Also that movement will wear out the rubber much quicker. My radius arm has a good round 1.5Ē ball and the rubber bushing. Iíve never had any problems with it and Iím saving metal on metal wear.

There arenít many ďupgradesĒ I like but this is one of them.
