I bought this cutter this weekend the guy said it didn't work so I got it for 100.00. .Its made to cut long strips from a roll of aluminum to be used for seamless gutters any length...well I got it to the shop and turned it on and everything seemed to work but when I stuck some sheet metal in it the guide was so far up the metal couldn't meet up with the cutter so I just lowerd it a tad and holly crap this thing can cut some sheetmetal and fast, too fast, little pieces less than a foot long are pulled out right out of your hand and land on the floor (in two pieces)...So the plan was to convert this to a nice bead roller but it sure does a great job as a cutter nice clean cuts and fast not as fast as a shear but just as clean....the fence is real nice to...everything works so now what do I do, keep it as a cutter and get something else to make my deep throat bead roller. or forge on and make it a bead roller anyway all the parts are there but I think the shafts will need to be turned down some more to fit the wider rollers....

Do you think if you changed the pulley on the motor to a 3/4 OD pulley it would slow it down enough for you;
the picture looks like a 2-1/2 pulley so a 3/4 should put you around 30% the speed it is running now:confused ??:

had my second run ever on primer today...joy!

1.8 tip/urethane primer/ 50 degrees

First time spraying a urethane with a tip that big. Not a great idea. I adjusted and didn't have any problems after that but what a wake up call! The GS fenders are in final prime and they look lazer straight in the second round of primer.

Very nice John.

It's making the second piece the same as the first that differentiates the rest from the pros.

Looks great.

Oh hell yes it looks great! Yep, making the other side is the hard part. It's like pinstriping. Have you ever pinstriped? I have tried a bit and found that I could make a decent little stripe. But to make the other side the same? That is a whole different story!

I love working in the driveway better than the garage. I am always pushing my
53 in and out! I will be driving it in and out this April.

I got ahold of the Canadian SPI rep today. I ordered a batch of epoxy primer.
He is a real great guy to deal with. I was impressed.

It is going to be hard to slow that slitter down. The pulleys are against you. You almost need a gear or a slip as the motor looks like 1725 rpm ( low speed ). But if you slow it down, the possibilities are endless! You can do anything with a few sets of wheels. I am jealous as heck. And you can even use it as a slitter
at slow speed. I have used many a slitter like that, as a slitter. Wear Gloves around that thing

Thanks Craig.

We encourage everyone to bring a car part to work on.

Last weekend of April.
Lots of hotels in the area.
