Where you find square “U” channel for the base of a Diehl cat. no. G 10 AJ17

Picked up one of these a little while ago and the edge banding on the base was old, crusty, and falling apart.

I need some help finding a replacement material without breaking the bank.   The only thing I’ve seen that comes close is sold by the roll and is $$-$$$.

Best I can describe the original banding is “square U-channel with a 3/16”-1/8” flat bottom grove, and about 1/4” tall”.   It presses onto the edge of the metal base.

If anyone has some left over (14-18”) they’ve used I’d be very interested in it.  

Bad pic from eBay, but it shows a fan with a broken piece of banding.   

Note:  I picked up some door edging from an auto parts store but it doesn’t fit.    

Any help appreciated.

I've found some at McMaster searching bumper strip. Sold by 10 foot lengths. Some shorter.

Steve and Pat,

Yea, I saw the Mc-M also.   Found some on Amazon by the foot and ordered 4 feet.   
Coming tomorrow.  I’ll post up my success or failure.

Yea, it didn’t work.  It was too thin and too hard to cut evenly to allow for the step down.   Returning it.  

pics below.   The edge is about 1/16” wide, with a step on the inside that’s about 1/8” high.   It does appear that the original (?) material was glued in place.

John, pm me your address. I have some rubber material that should fit that. I've used it on the bases of a couple pedestal fans and it works well.
