I am fixing up a 1950s Boice crane oscillating spindle sander and need to find a source for the rubber drums.

I have 5 spindles:

1. 1/4 shaft for a 5” long drum.
1. 3/8 shaft for a 6” long drum.
1. 1/2 shaft for a 6” long drum.
1. 1/2 base with out the shaft so I could make one any length.
1. 3/4 shaft for a 9” long drum.

I know that Boice Crane is long gone but I hope that someone might know of another manufacture that has the rubber drums that would fit one of the shaft sizes. I’m thinking that if I can get drums that fit any one of the shaft sizes, I could resort to swapping out the different size rubber drums on the same spindle.

Found this on another site, not sure if it is still a valid source.
