Microdrive rollers

Does anyone know where I may be able to get any Microdrive rollers, seeing as RWAP seems to be out of stock?

One of my QLs (the rescue job) has mdv1_ seemingly running the tape slightly too slowly (won't read carts formatted on other drives) so I'm guessing that the roller has shrunk a bit and the other has a split (but carts read fine, if noisily!).

I'm guessing that the other drives I have (the other QL and two ZX Microdrives) may be having similar issues but I've not checked.

I'd like to get drives working in time for the vDriveQL to arrive so I can transfer the data off the old media before it dies for good.

P.S. Will a vDriveQL work with an Interface 1 with a flipped cable as ZX Microdrives will work with a QL with one?
