Rip, I have a brand new chain in a box I'll never use. It came in a complete set and all I used was the power head. PM me your address and I'll send it to you.

It was some 20 of 22 ga but it gave me a good idea of how the roller and tool work. I still need to look into my garage door motor power assist I am going to put on but that is less of a priority now.

Here it is still a work in progress.
get rid of the crank and tensioner bolt and you're all good.

MARTINSR Today I got out to the garage for a little work on the rad grille and front fender of the Crosley. I can't believe how awesome this worked tapping the holes and screwing the screws in to weld. Geeez

I got it all ready to weld and then marked the front fender as my brother had marked a photo. I took a bunch of photos and sent them to him to see if it's good to go like this.

You know what's real sad, my program for the show I went to saturday with Steve and Nick has a photo of the bike saying it's in the show.

Rip VW Thanks John,

I have some motorcycle parts and pieces and I think I may have something in my scrap. I also have a bicycle that is trashed so I will look at the large sprocket on it also..

I am going to build this on the frugal side. I already have my chain drive opener so a pedal an sprocket and a chain is all I need to finish it. Speaking of finishing it I better get busy.. Thanks again for the info John I appreciate it.

I don't think so. I believe the sewing machine motors are DC and the garage door motor is AC. Hopefully, someone will jump in here that knows more about them than I do.

I have wondered if a sewing machine motor would work but doubt they afe reversable like the garage door opener.

It is ok but I would not want it to run any faster either. If I remember, I bought it off Ebay for like 35 bucks and had to buy the hub for it seperately. That was the only real money item. The foot control is a single action foot switch from Harbor Freight that was very cheap. Make sure you don't accidently buy a push on, push off switch. You need a push and hold switch for control. On tight radiuses you will need to "cycle" it for control.

I have been looking at the parts that I have to fab up for it and I have some new ideas as to how to go about building the left and right sides. I might have to buy some more 18 ga but it will be worth it in what I will learn on this deck lid. You know practice makes perfect..

While I have your attention John what was the final sprocket sizes you used on your door opener power for your bead roller?
