I was doing a bit of maintenance on the ERBE and noticed my slipper pads have some deep lines carved in them, the slipper was clearly too loose and they've worn down quite a bit.
When would you guys replace yours, and how do you know it's time to replace them? I'm guessing they're cheap enough to replace at will, and I'll probably order some shortly.
Would worn pads affect performance/heat? I'd assume it would result in it slipping more often, and the motor would heat up as it has less resistance - correct?
