Re: Treadwall Auto-"stop" Question for Treadwall Owners/User

The problem this creates is a "hurried" shake/rest. I was expecting that I could...if needed, rest for as long as needed as long as my foot was engaging the switch via the bottom board....not so. Install a big jug bar at the top of the wall, not attached to the rotating parts. That way your weight ...
