    Looking for replacement bushings for a PYI Python Drive. PYI in the states no longer supports them. Any other sources?

    Bushing or Bearing? Show me a picture and size, I might have some.

    I replaced mine with wood ones made from IPE, called Ironwood. They work fine and they seem to last forever. When I go to my warehouse on Saturday/Sunday I will check which rubber bushing I have left over.

    Thanks, but I think the solid wood bushes would defeat the vibration-damping intention of the rubber bushings. There may be some other aftermarket replacement, but I was able to contact the manufacturer in NL at mailto:info@dintra.nl for replacement parts.
