I've got an old Wellpress shoe press that could do with the foam being replaced on the press head. Does anyone know a supplier or service provider who can refurbish these?

 

Thanks for any info..

I believe that machine was built by K&B, who are no longer, you may struggle.  Maybe put some pictures on here and let us have a look?

Last resort. You could always scour the pad down you already have and glue some other material you have lying around yourself. Maybe some micro material?

We did this on an old WH&B press, we just roughened it up and glued a piece of rubber sheet on it, it outlasted the machine...
