Redwood Plastics and Rubber has a long history of providing premium quality machined kiln wheel bushings to customers. But leads times can often be 4 weeks or sometimes more to ship your bushings and there are times you simply cannot wait. The good news is we can often get tube stock to you, oversized on the outer diameter and undersized on the inner diameter, to allow you to machine your own bushings. This will often save 1-1.5 weeks on your order time and is good if you have a shutdown coming up where getting finished bushings simply isn’t possible in your time frame. You can machine the bushings locally in your facility or outsource them to a local shop.
Some of our branches also stock regular blue nylon kiln bushings in popular sizes. While these do not fit all kiln wheels and are not made of our superior Hi-Temp Yellow material, they are for emergency use. They will not come with grease grooves or holes either. Regardless, the best advice we could give is to either buy the bushings in bulk and keep the spares on hand or purchase some tube stock to keep on hand in case of emergencies. If you have any questions about our Redco kiln bushings or kiln bushing material please contact us today.
