One thing that has worked for mee in the past is to replace the "gummy"
rubber with black adhesive lined heatshrink tubing. Measure the old roller
diameter, remove old rubber down to metal part, carefuly shrink on a piece
of new heatshrink. Oversize heatshring builds up thickness quickely, sizes
close to the diameter do so more slowly. With *care* it can be turned to
the correct diameter although not by much, you need to be close to finished
I used adhesive lined for the first layer on the metal core, susequent
layers stick to each other quite well.
