I have been using these for about a year and they are superb. The old rollers eventually collapsed and had to be replaced but these seem to be very long lasting. I found rollers that fit all of my brayers, including some very old ones.

I certainly recommend them. They are available at

Many thanks for your e-mail.
The rollers measure between 25 and 30 on the Shore

Hope this helps.
