I went with http://www.terrysrubberrollers.com/. Since the TU10 just wraps the
tape around the capstan it needs to be pretty high friction. The material
used was a little marginal so after it aged some I had had to put some rubber
renew on to increase the friction.
I did use various tubing for card reader repair and found the standard
stuff wall thickness isn't uniform around the circumference. The TU10
covering is also very thin. I would think you would have to grind it down
to get it uniform and proper thickness.
