  • We started building a extra heavy duty roller

    One of my steel suppliers has a 36" hand roller, I went and picked it up today so that I could copy off of it.

    I rolled 24" of 10 ga with out a problem,

    I also did a 4" wide x 1/2" thick pc. the 1/2 was pretty tuff but it was doing it.
    Most of the rollers I see are maxed out doing 16 ga.

    Ill show pics when its done.

    show us pic's of the donor roller?? a 36" slip roll would be sweet. thats what you are making yes ??
    cant wait to see the finished project. don't forget to save us the bearing #'s or sizes. TSC has a decent supply but i don't know how they compare for $$.

    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

            A big power roller would be great, however I dont have that much room for the amount that I would use it.

            I cant wait to get it finished, The rollers are 36" long and made out of DOM tube 3" OD with a 1/2" wall, The bearings are a simple 2" OD with a 1" bore sealed bearing with no housing.

            They will press into the side plate frame which is 3/4" plate.

            I just need my brother in law to bore the 2" holes in the 3/4" plate for the bearings to press into.
