    Hello,

    I have an "OLD" Allen 830 Plus. From what I hear, they no longer make the stip under neath the cutter blade. So called, "Groove Filler" in the manual. Now does anyone know where I can get this so called, "Groove Filler" and if not can they suggest to me an alternative.

    Here's my problem: There are a few well driven grooves in my stip there. This makes cutting very difficult/time costly when I go to weed stuff out.

    Now I'm not sure if this is the proper forum either so please bare with me since I have never had to do this before.

    Thank You,

    Matthew

    I believe they call the groove filler a platten strip. Usually you can reverse the strip and use the other side if it hasn't already been used.

    If you haven't, I'd try Allen Datagraph for a strip or maybe your local supply company.

    I also have an Allen, and just purchased a new insert, Center Platen. The part # for mine is PL-00-24-680. The cost was $12.00. You can call Allen Direct at 603-893-1983
