Need to find new rollers for sliding patio door

This is from a sliding patio door roller in a home in Los Angeles, CA built in the 1950s. Anyone seen this before? Anyone know where I can find a replacement? this was tract housing so all homes in the area should have this type of slider. HELP!

No way to tell based only on photos. This isn't it, but it might give you a start... start comparing measurements and you might find something that could work.

If Swisco can't supply it, then this is a prime example of a 3D printer. I have saved many doors and screen for customers by manufacturing corners for repair. I currently have about 20 templates at my disposal. When I quit, I wonder what the store and customers are going to do.

I doubt if you'll find the housing but you might find the wheel and axle. https://www.swisco.com/srch?q=steel+...%20%26%20Axles
