    I haven't seen a re-coated roller in years. The quality was inferior at best. I'd advise you to stay away from re-coated rollers.

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.

    I didn't even know that was possible at all. Maybe it's from before my time?

    The cost of rollers is so cheap these days, its almost silly to re-coat. And yes Alden Broaden is still around. They have a few video out there demonstrating this, most of them consist of a guy in a basement with a lathe, a spray guns full of epoxy, and a whole lot of patience. Ever notice that distinct smell of a fresh fuser roller...? I wonder what the re-coated ones smell like...

    Lot of negative responce, but for anyone with an interest. I have used Alden-Broden for years on a steady basis. Started with Xerox 1090 soft fuser rolls and hard pressure rolls. Currently sending all Konica rolls from the smallest machines to 1050 hard rolls. Cost savings is tremendous and reliability varies, but I will say it is as good as OEM rolls. The reason for my original query, I would like to have more than one vendor. For those who don't like recoats I'm sure you have your reasons, if you never have, try one. It may be the best $20.00 you ever spent.

    Re: Recoated fuser rolls

    MDSI will do recoats, depending on the item, mostly Xerox. However, they sell OEM that are price competitive, making it more financially attractive to go with new. There are some listings on Ebay under the store name of rainmooseplace. Search for Xerox DC12 and you will find contact info. Also, because of Xerox's decision on wide format, they are expanding that part of the business.

    Re: Recoated fuser rolls

    Anybody know who will recoat 123/128 roll? Two of the coaters I have used over the last almost 4 decades can't do them - too thin. One coater ruined them because stripping the coating on such a thin roll - at least the way they were doing it - callapsed the roll. They say coating is not the problem, removing it is. A thicker roll causes warm up problems. Setting 744-043 to 1 seems to have helped - but I wouldn't go setting up all your machines that have the thicker roll based on this discussion - I have tried this on only 20 machines. The mechanical relay, cleaning the center thermistor, and the mcu bd (bad solder joints) may have also helped. Having a model shop make the thinner rolls and then have them recoated is the next step I think. Any ideas? btw, 1090 recoats (where I was getting them) were marginal at best - loose hubs, bad rubber, out of round, etc.
