This pic was in another thread.
I don't have a threaded shaft, and I'm not set up to make one.

I have a 0.5" shaft with a hole going across a diameter. A pin is in the hole. Hockey pucks are on both sides of the pin. Bolts and nuts sandwich the pucks around the pin.

I would like a larger roller. I'm thinking 4", but I can't find any sheet rubber locally. (But I'm sure they are in this city somewhere.)

Tractor Supply has a stall mat. It's 0.75 inch thick. Is that what you use when you used rubber? I can't find any sheets of rubber locally.
