Toe Guard Rubber?
« on: February 12, 2018, 01:48:17 PM »

Hi all,

My first post - I came across this forum trying to find an answer about toe guards. Does anyone know what rubber they are made from? I have access to cutting equipment and I was thinking I could buy a sheet of rubber and make multiple toe guards....

Rich,

Often thought the same myself.

Must be easier and more cost effective to buy the material in sheet form then just cut to size as and when needed?!

Good tip, get some Shoe Goo. It's cheaper, and in my experience lasts a lot longer and does a better job protecting the toe as it forms a complete seal and doesnt wear down very quick, if it does you just apply another layer. It's also alot easier to remove! And if you aren't much of a crease tapper you can still see through it so you'll be able to tell if theres any toe damage if you apply it neat enough! You can dip your finger into water once it's applied to smooth the surface before it cures so it's smooth and shiny!
