Adjustable keel roller - Where from?

Hi guys,
My bunk 'launching trolley'/trailer is a bunked trailer with a single keel roller up front. The roller is mounted on a bracket with a vertical shaft and secured to the trailer with 2 x U-Bolts and a plate. Now finding a roller is no problem, but for the life of me (Been searching all morning) I can't find a suitable mount. I've seen other tyres of mounts online but they wouldn't suit as the rollers will be quite a bit above the crossmembers. I have attached a picture, you will see the front roller (NOT the bow rollers beside the winch). I have tried emailing the manafacturer (American) but no word from t hem yet. You will also see 'wings' which are covered with white tubing - I want to avoid these if possible

Getting the roller, and small bracket that it sits into is no problem, but I can't find any units with a vertical shaft attached to the bottom of this little bracket

Any help much appreciated!

Just get a local fabricator to make one up should only be pennies and paint it in galv paint, or go for stainless bit more money

Have you tried Indespension? www.indespension.co.uk. They've never let me down. Try going down through their menus: Parts - BodyworkParts and Fittings - Boat Rollers and Supports - Roller Assemblies.

Seaskills - Will try the website thanks for the link

bedajam - I could just weld a bit myself but I don't know if i'd trust it. But then again it's not going to be supporting much weight, it's just more of a guide really
