Kilian Toronto roller

A home owner from Mastic beach, NY says:

I have screen doors and the rollers are marked: "Kilian" Toronto Can 8 Syracuse NY. The roller measures 1 4/16x 1 3/4. I would appreciate your help in locating replacements.

Thank you.
Joe

Hey, Joe.  We may be able to help. Can you tell me the thickness of the housing? Can you also tell me the diameter of the wheel? That information would be a huge help for us, thank you!

I sent some pictures of the dimensions, hopefully they will work for you, if not please let me know.

Thanks for getting back to us. I'm afraid I can't find a good match for this roller. The main obstacle is the style, since we just don't have anything like it. Take a look at the list of rollers I made on this page. I could only narrow it down about this far. Do you think you could adapt the 81-019 to your door? Or is your roller just the inside portion of a larger unit, sort of like the 81-071

Your best best might be to use one of the nylon wheels I listed, depending on your diameter, along with the 81-310 axle kit. You could also reuse your existing axle. 

To remove that broken screw, you will need to use a file to flatten the broken part of the screw so you can drill it out. You might also try a set of locking pliers if you can catch the screw. They also make what is called an "screw extractor," but you will still need to drill into the screw to use it.

I'm honestly not sure who made it. I wasn't able to find this part when I researched it.
