Roller and axle replacement

A home owner from Cambria, CA 93428 says:
I need to replace wheels and axles in 20 sliding windows. The windows are Radco Series 800 Weather-Loc.
Roller dimensions are 7/16" diameter, 3/16" thick, with an 1/8"
axle hole. The axle is 1/8" diameter. Length is 1/2" with an
endcap 1/4" diameter and about 1/16 thick. The wheel id steel
and the axle is Nylon.
Do you have a direct replacement or one that is usable for this
purpose? If so please quote price and delivery for 40 wheels
and rollers (20 windows)

Thank you,

Good Morning,

Can you please submit photos of your current wheels and axles? This will help us in our research for possible replacements for your windows.

In the meantime, please take a look at our Sliding Window Replacement Hardware section.

Can you supply roller and axle sets for Radco Series 800 Weather-Loc sliding glass windows? The rollers are steel and the axles are Nylon.

I have the same type of windows that are in need of roller replacements. I have attached some pictures of the steel roller, the 5/16 inch diameter replacements that didn't work and pictures of the rollers after removal.

The rollers are steel and approximately 7/16 inches in diameter and just under 1/4 inches thick (0.22 with a digital caliper).

The axles are nylon and are about 1/8 inch in diameter and just over 1/2 inch long with a small endcap on the interior side.

Do you have a similar replacement?

Thank you,

Take a look at our 87-193 steel roller with nylon axle. Could that be the part you are looking for?
A home owner from Los Osos, CA says:
Thanks, Dave.

I would probably have to enlarge the axle holes in the frames in order to accept the slightly larger pins. I may give 87-193 a try and order a trial of another style as well to see which works best.

Thank you,
