32453RE: Rubber rollers for Documation 600L reader - any hints
- Sep 20, 2013
How big are the rollers you are looking for? I recently rescued some old pinch rollers for some 3/4" VCR's. The rubber on them was a little hard but still usable imho.

I will go down the obvious route of looking for usable substitutes that match the dimensions, but someone might have parts, a machine that has good rollers but is unrepairable for other reasons, or know of a good supplier.
This machine will be used at a museum in the UK to read and save card decks. The restoration staff at the museum has searched in vain for the parts and didn't have any luck getting a custom-manufactured substitute. I agreed to lend a hand from afar.
