In addition to the Suns that I collect, I also collect ultra-portable 
typewriters. JJ Short are recommended for platen and rollers on the 
Typewriters mailing list and, based on their website, it looks like they 
could do molded rubber parts for printers. I have heard that they are 
pricey, but I wouldn't know. Despite sending in quote requests twice, I 
have yet to receive price quotes for platen and rollers for my typewriters.
