I have a question pertaining to the hardware on a number 01 vandercook proofing press. Provided are images of said hardware. I will call them “stoppers” as that is what they do-they prevent the roller from rolling off the press bed. Recently a colleague caused the roller to get stuck partially off the press bed. I ended up taking these off. As you can see, we are missing one of the rubber stoppers. Where might I acquire a new set of these? I’m going to communicate with our dept’s shop tech supervisor about trying to have a new set 3-d printed. We are also missing two of the four headless support bolts. I was going to take them to my local hardware store and see if they have the size we need.
Thank you for any help and/or information about these parts. Also, if these are not called stoppers what are they technically called?
