    Default Replacement Jogwheel Platters

    Hey guys, I bought a used VCI100 a few months ago online. Everything has been great, except that the previous user had overtightened the metal touch surface disks to the clear plastic platters. The holes are now either cracked or stripped so the metal disk keeps coming loose- making my jog unresponsive to touch. The problem seems to be getting worse and happening quicker as time goes on. Anyone know where I can buy some replacements? I already emailed the store, figuring they may have some due to the refurb program, but no dice there. Thanks

    You're talking about the clear disc correct? Go to an auto parts store and get some plastic repair putty.

    Fill the hole and any cracks in completely and let it cure at least overnight. Then you'll be able to drill new holes through the cured putty. Not 100% sure this'll work, but it's worth a try.

    Great idea! I thought about something like this, but wasn't sure if they made a specific product for it. I'll have to give it a whirl- even if it's not perfect, it's better than an unresponsive jog

    Strangely, I only spotted these yesterday and thought to myself "how come someone would want two random jog wheels"....
