    High load screw adjustable roller

    G'day everyone.

    I'm chasing a part similar to the one shown below in the drawing. Essentially I need to support a slow moving bed and remove some backlash. Has anyone seen something off the shelf? Sliding door rollers are similar but massively undersized for my application. It would need to support 200Kgs

    Cheers,
    Mick.

    What dimensions and plunger travel can be accommodated? This wouldn't be difficult to fab-up, based on a suitable die spring. 200KGs is only 440 pounds.

    My shed doors "hang" from 3 of those, riding in a rolled c channel style of things. It would easily weigh in excess of 200 kg's. But they are a bit larger than sliding door rollers.
