Hi Malcolm,
When faced with this problem I usually make new steel “stones” from pivot steel, turn it to just over the correct diameter then polish to size , then you need to file exactly half way through , keep checking progress with a micrometer or caliper, stop just over and polish to size , check the hole sizes in the pallet frame, quite often they’re far too big , in which case bush to size, sometimes soft soldering the bush in is required, then line up as bob suggests,
If you’ve a tool and cutter grinder it takes minutes to make these to very aaccurate dimensions . . .
King regards daryn
P.s.am I right in thinking you’re in the UK ? If so and you get stuck I’d be happy to make some up and post yo you . . .
I’m also in the UK
