Different type of roller...

Anyone know what
is called or where one could get plans for it? Even though I can log on to Youtube, it won't let me post a question...

slip roller.

The Utube roller only gives you a radius to match the roller and doesn't allow you to roll a cone or the top panel of a model T Ford hood. I'll try to link you to a better design. It has power to all 3 rollers so you won't get lines if the metal slips

Thanks Tim. I had a chance to buy an old 48" x 14ga roller like that for a grand and a 700 mile round trip, just no place to put it! I may still look for one or try and build one if I can figure a spot for it. As of now, I'm having to farm out my tin work to a guy 1500 miles away because all the shops here either can't do it or are too busy.

My scrap pile

The scrap iron scroungers keep offering to clean up our obsolete old farm machinery . I say NO WAy that's my steel supply. I have solid steel rollers from the old spare parts of my brother's newspaper printing press he sold. just too many other projects first. I am converting a staple machine that was used to make 50 lb cartons for potatoes to a half size pullmax machine.

Just found an old 30's something roller. Its fixed which limits it. But I just had to have it.

That youtube roller is pretty cool. Wonder what he used for rollers?

adjustable radius

It looks like the LH ungeared roller is adjustable so you should be able to make various radius bends and just tighten one end to roll a cone . I don't see an unlatch provision so getting out a tight curve would be dificult

Just used what I had. Looks a bit funny, I'll admit that.
All I could do to lift that roller by myself. No fun getting old.

Thanks...I will say this... I always wanted one,, But never knew just how much it would be used,, I bet I roll something everyday.. This is one handy tool to own.. It's not real hard to build once you have all the stuff.. I did have to do some machine work on some of the parts,,
