I used Western Roller in Oregon to do a set for my Jet. You might try calling them and see if they have the molds already for your particular model. They did a great job and customer service was outstanding!

I have used http://www.griffithpolymersinc.com/index.php for a couple of sets for Makita planer rollers. I just removed them and they knew exactly which tool they were from. This is a really common issue with the Makita planers. I have also heard good things about Western Roller but have not used them since I am about 6 miles from Griffith.
