Replacement Wheels For Old Manual Reel Lawnmower

I am trying to locate the rear rollers for a manual reel lawnmower mfg by Clemson Bro's from 1938-circa 1970. The patent is still owned however I am unable to locate the current manufacturer. Perhaps a roller set from a comparable product may work. Any assistance you could render in aiding me locate and purchase this part would be appreciated.

Have you tried Ebay - don't know much about it but that people have found pretty hard to find items there.

In ref. to my ancient Clemson Bro's reel lawnmower rear replacement rollers I solved the problem with the help of a friend who owns a wood lathe. He drilled the dowels, beveled the edges and wham bam! Back in business after 40+ years. This particular Clemson was purchased in El Paso,TX in 1952. For a 56 y/o manual product the Clemson really delivers like a champ.

Many thanks to all who proffered tips and solutions.

Peace and Positive Karma,

The rollers on mine are made of wood - probably oak. Thre are three of them, each 5 5/8 inches long. They are 2 1/4 inches in diameter. At each end they are turned down to a about 1 5/16 inches in diameter for maybe 1/4 to 3/8 inches in from the edge. Anyone with a wood lathe and drill press could make these for you.
