I've used nylon washers (from Home Depot) with no problems. You can also cut out your own from old gift cards or credit cards-- you just need to cut a circle about 1/2 to 5/8" across, then drill a hole through the center the same size as your grip bolts, and the plastic is nice and slippery so the blades can lead/lag properly.

I do this all the time. The best thing I have found is unused servo wheels. I have a bunch of extras made out of that really tough plastic. I just remove any lips and they become a great plastic washer. HS 81 wheels work great for my Belt CP. Jim
