It is not advised to use your track spikes on hard surfaces for a number of reasons, firstly it will ruin them, a hard surface will wear down the spikes, secondly the spikes do not support the foot so it could cause problems with the foot area also the spikes would not penetrate the surface which could make it very slippery - do not use your track spikes on a hard surface.

Can changing from running shoes to running shoes with track spikes damage my legs or feet?

Changing from running in regular workout shoes to track spikes can cause Achilles tendon problems. Your Achilles tendon, sometimes called the calcaneal tendon, connects your calf muscles to your heel bone. A slow onset of pain that increases with exertion is likely to be tendonitis, whereas a sudden pain may be a partial or complete Achilles' tendon rupture. Achilles' tendons injuries are slow to heel and, in the case of ruptures, can even require surgery.

How to remove the track spikes on my running shoes?

Place the spike key over the top of the spike, ensuring that you secure it around the base. Hold the shoe firmly and slowly turn the key to the left to loosen and remove the spike. One you get the spike turning, it should come out easily.

Yamaha DD-65 pad 2 has lost its sensetivety, if i hit it really hard it works, but when tapping it lightly like i can with the other pads, it does not sound. I have only just bought it second hand so...

There is a setting to use that sets for using either sticks or by hands. If a single pad is thee problem, likely the sensor has come loose. Most of these use a piezo disc pickup and this may have separated from the pad. Open unit carefully and check for this visually. If separated, try to analyze what type adhesive was used. It is likely a contact cement. If so, clean surfaces of residue and use contact cement following the direction. Let dry overnight per the label on the cement. Be careful of the cables in the unit when opening. Keep track of which screws go where. They sometimes have different lengths and threads.

My 2-8-4 Locomotive stops at the right hand switch and will not reverse. It is the only train of my three that does this

This is a common problem with FasTrack Remotes and Manual switches. It is relative to where the center roller pickup is in relation to the wheels (common connection to outter track rails). Solution is to put electrical tape on the outter rail that forms a V between the turn in and the straight away. This elliminates about 1.5" of track discontinuity. It also eliminates wheel sparking that pits the surface of the outter rail. Wish I had a better solution short of taking the switch apart and doing some rewiring.

I have a geotrax train that is not responding to its remote. I put brand new batteries in it and it still does not work. The remote makes the noise and the red light lights up on top of the train. Is there...

I had the same problem with two of our three engines. I read somewhere that you can get them running by hitting the side of the engine against a hard surface. I can't believe it... IT WORKED! I guess the motor gets **** and hitting it will get it going. All three engines are working now.

Paper wont feed through on my canon fc224 photocopier

On these fax machines the most component that gets the most usage are the feed rolls.
Even though they are hard to find and hard to reach, using a flashlight one can view the surface of the feed wheels. By inspecting the surface, they may appear to be shinny instead of the normal feed wheel surface tracks.

Either the wheels need to be replaced or cleaning the surface might get a little reliablity, eventually they may need to be replaced.

Some feed wheels have a lower or they might be on the upper part of the drive train, where they have a square rubber pad.

This is especially true with document feeders, the most common part that wears out.

These pads or, arm tips wear out and need to be replaced.
I hope this helps out.
