    Is there anywhere on the web I can order / purchase small pinch
    rollers for a cassette recorder. The one I have now has a depression
    due to the autostop not working and the player remaining on for many
    hours before I noticed it. I actually need a company in the UK or one
    that can ship to the UK. All I need is the roller - not the mounting.
    I need a selection so that I can use the best one that fits. Many
    thanks - Chris B.

    Find a small local industrial rubber supply company.
    Ask about cordage of the relevant diameter.
    Drill a hole down the centre of a cut piece of this cordage.

    local suppliers to me, Hampshire, England

    Preferably go in when its quiet and stock up with a range of "O" rings and
    they may give you a sample length of cordage, otherwise about 2GBP per

    OK - thanks everyone. Filing the bump out of the roller didn't work -
    so replacement it is. I'll try the cordage idea. Hadn't thought of
    that!! Great idea. Chris Brady.

    a pic of the mech and pinch roller would be useful.chances are it will
    be the same one used on any number of budget machines, the ones
    pre-1984 ish were larger and the ones after that are smaller. you may
    have to get one from a cannibalised junk radio/cassette or midi system
    from the tip or car boot sale.

    meanwhile here is a page with a few
