Morning all, this is not just OT, it is way OT. As we have quite a number of engineering types posting and lurking, I'm hoping someone will know a possible source who can machine rubber coated rollers.
On some of our old fashioned manual capacitor winding machines, are rubber rollers which the plastic film passes over. They need to be rubber to provide grip. They are typically 74 mm od (almost 3") by 57mm wide. The construction is aluminium, coated in rubber to a depth of about 10mm. Ours have now got rather perished and battle-scarred. We are not talking about many, so a small guy would seem the best option.
I'm sure plenty of people must make this sort of thing, the problem is I don't know any of them!
I would be grateful for any suggestions for suppliers.
