Wooden Sliding Screen door wheel assembly

A home owner from San Jose, CA says:
To whom it may concern,

I am trying to replace either the wheel and bearing assembly or the entire piece. So far, I have not been able to find anything close. Local repair folks cannot either. Ideas?

Hey, Jim. Take a look at our 81-247. Do you think you could use this roller? You may need to bend back the mounting tab, but otherwise it seems to match well. What do you think?

Dave,

The original has a steel wheel. As this is a wooded door, the weight may be too much. Thoughts? Otherwise, it looks good.

I'm afraid we only have the 81-247 with a nylon roller. We have looked everywhere for a steel version but have had no luck finding a match. A nylon wheel could still work, but if your door is especially heavy then it may have a shortened lifespan.
