Replacement Tambour..

There are several sources for direct replacement tambour material...

Search for "tambour" and "source" to find places like http://www.winonamanufacturing.com/ and Tape-Ease...

You should be able to measure length and width by reassembling pieces, or measuring into slots.. If not, you may get help from owners of identical units...

Search some more...

If you search for more threads on tambour, you may find photo's of others who have replaced or redone, and that may lead you to send private messages for more details or real close-up photo's... Things like handle grips etc are also available from suppliers, and in color choices...

They weren't all that complicated, just rolled up piece of material with handle, and channels that went together to hold them in place.. Usually rivets occurred...
