1947 Pocket Door Roller

A home owner from Charleston, SC says:
Dear Experts,
Can you please find or recommend a single roller or double roller that may work on this door. These doors are at least 75lbs and I am trying to refinish them. I have 5 pocket doors do refinish. These doors were installed in the wall of the existing home around 1947. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for posting, Mike. Can you confirm the diameter of your wheel? We may be able to help, but we're just having trouble finding something. Thanks!
A home owner from Charleston, SC says:
The diameter is 1-1/4 inches.

Hmm. I'm afraid we haven't been able to find an exact match for this roller. I have seen a few that match the wheel diameter, but there are enough differences that I don't think they are compatible. You may want to consider a new pocket door kit. We offer three kinds: see our 23-250, 23-251, and 23-252 and see if you could use any of these.
