Aftermarket runners/hyfax for sled
« on: Aug 06, 2018, 02:00 PM »
Curious where everyone gets their aftermarket runners from?  Don't really want to spend $50 ordering them direct.

What are the dimensions that I would need?  I know length, but why about thickness and width?

Search ebay for hyfax. You may get lucky and find a good deal.

Maybe check with your local arena. Our arena was recovering a bunch of benches and stuff with puck board and I got all the scraps for nothing. It has worked really well so far.

1/4" thick, 1 1/4 or 1 1/2" wide.

lots of options.    teflon.  nylon poly pvc etc

go to lowes check out the trim and molding section. 

most stuff will bend slightly with heat gun.     outdoors

or just try an old pair of skis

Try a piece of PVC decking I used a piece I had left over cut down to 1.5 inches wide.Extremely durable on 4 season's now and is sometimes pulled on road behind atv for short distances.And yes will bend with heat gun.
