I've got a cheap, used, Regal that I'm trying to get into shape. I'm certain that I want to replace the cone with a scheerhorn cone as soon as I can afford it. However, I don't know much about spiders. And I have some questions.
When/why do they need to be replaced?
How do I know what kind is in this one?
What differences do spiders make?
I can say that I took it apart to make adjustments, I tried to level the spider legs, and shaping that thing was tough. I've read to be careful with it, but I was pressing with all my weight to try and bend those legs even the slightest bit. It feels very heavy duty. Is that bad?
