I'm working on getting the best targets out of these machines as possible. I'm wondering how you know when to replace the rubber.
The problem machine is on the low house. Taking the curl out of the target requires moving the arm toward the front edge of the plate.
When I have it throwing targets without curl, they throw wayyyy inside (left), so - I loosen the bolts to turn the machine. Problem is, the machine is now turned as far as possible, and it's still throwing too far to the left....
Could this indicate that the arm is worn and needs replaced? Or do we need to re-drill the mounting holes in order to turn the machine further right? Trying to fix it as simply as possible. As it is now, we have it throwing through the hoop, but in order to do that requires the arm to move back, which introduces curl, and it ends up 10' to the right of the distance marker.
Anyone that has set targets with these old machines knows what I'm talking about.
Thanks for any advice!
