We make custom sheaves, anchor rollers, rudder bushings etc from white or black acetal (see data sheet)

We produce these in our own US production facilities so can produce other sizes and shapes.

Send us a sketch, we will do a CAD drawing for you to verify and for your future records.
I am on Facebook at:

Let us know the following details:
1/ Line diameter
2/ Measure the sheave end diameter
3/ Measure the length between 2 sides
4/ Use calipers and measure the diameter of the bolt or spacer that runs through the center hole. Do not measure the hole in the old roller as it will be worn and probably incorrect.
5/ Send the information and your details to us via the form here:
6/ We will send you a quote within 24 hours

I could not get these sheaves in germany. Don did a professional job.

Standard shipping to germany went fast and I could pay the customs duty at the postman.
Thanks Don.

We asked Don to fabricate new chalk rollers for our Tayana 48.  Working to get these custom rollers was a "dream".  Don and Sharon were very eager to help us and get it right!  Thanks Don.
