Rollers and Adana Parts
Glenthorne Rollers sell rubber rollers and they're very helpful for smaller presses.

A & M Components sell, amongst other things, polyurethane rollers; ask for their 20 shore hardness for letterpress use. In March 2009 they quoted £40 (including postage but not stocks/roller shafts – you provide your old ones) for a pair of rollers to suit an Adana 8 x 5.

Caslon Limited now own the rights to Adana. They have a friendly service and can supply spare parts (including rollers) and refurbished machines. Sorry that we can't link to specific pages (their website uses frames), but the Adana section is clearly marked.
Other options for sourcing parts include:
- Reading/placing adverts in the Small Printer (issued by the BPS).
- Putting the word round in your local BPS group or on the Letpress mailing list (make sure they know you're in the UK!).
