    It looks like we need to either replace or refurbish the rollers on our laminator. What do I google to find someone who can mill them locally? I have a US Tech Laminator and I haven't even reached out to them to find out replacement cost or availabilty. I assume its going to be expensive.

    I called US Tech, its $1200 per roller to replace. I bought my laminator exactly 5 years ago for $2775. The same model now costs $3350. My partner thinks we should probably just buy new rollers, and I sorta agree.

    maybe check with a local machine shop, and see if they offer Milling services- I think a lathe with a sharp blade can do it. they may be able to put a crown on it too...
    Also -you can swap them -Upper to bottom and bottom to upper if the lower is in better chape.

    you can refurbish the rollers by a company that refurbish offset rollers - they grind the old silicone down and re-siliconize the roller. The cest in our country is about 300$ for a 160cm roller.
