    Rubber sleeve for the infeed roller on a planer?

    Hi, anyone know if I can get a rubber sleeve to fit over the infeed roller on a Powermatic 100 planer?
    I asked google but there was no good reply.
    thanks, Mark

    Don't know about the sleeve but Western Roller will coat it with urethane for you. you can give them a call about price. Great outfit to deal with.

    If you sleeve or build up the existing roller it will turn at a higher surface speed than the outfeed roller, which could be problematic. You may want to turn down the infeed roller before coating to maintain the original diameter.
