A quick learner says:
I am looking for 20 wheels like #10-128 only with a 1/2" OD for my kitchen drawers, wheel width somewhere in the vicinity of 11/32. Do you have any like this?

Thanks,

Hey, John, thanks for posting. I don't believe we have a roller like this with that diameter. Could I see a few pictures of your roller and track system? We may not be able to replace the roller, but maybe we can help with the track.

Paul,

I will just machine a UHMW wheel out of 1/2' bar stock (drill a hole and part off) then use a long 4-40 socket head cap screw that is not threaded all the way as an axle and use two nuts to lock it on and cut off the excess. Not as good as a ball bearing but as a bushed wheel it will out last the cabinets.

The drawers have no space on the sides for tracks and only 1/8' underneath, old stuff.

Thank you for your time,

John
