Drive roller material on belt sander

Drive roller on Porter-Cable model 371K mini belt sander has a friction material .060" thick, ~1 inch ID, ~2.375" Wide black rubber-like tube. Mine disintegrated and the roller part# A16439SV has been discontinued. Any ideas of either a source or substitute?

Supposedly this is the same part, and supposedly still in stock at this supplier in the UK.

Probably not as much as you think. You don't know what postage is until you put it in your cart to check out. If you don't like the price cancel it.

I've bought a few parts overseas and was pleasantly surprised that the shipping was less than the same/similar part in the USA. As X said, you won't know until you get to the shipping page.

Looks like 9.99 shipping. Reasonable to me.

This may be a solution:
tried to post picture...did not work....

O-rings 1" ID 1/16th inch round. Got a bag of 100 from Amazon for $8.89 US. Took about thirty to fill the roller. Will post if they work longer than 5 minutes!

That's thinking outside the box.

Used it yesterday to sand off some rough corners. Worked better than ever! All "O" rings stayed on the roller and no belt slip. We are back in business!
