For the top I bought a 22 MM "Browning" type hub and V belt pully from Burden's surplus center. for the top for a tipping roller. I have been gathering up pieces from old farm machinery, a box stapling machine for making 50# cardboard potatoe boxes into a dedicated thumb nail shrinker, old sharpening machine into a mini pulmax, parts from grain planters into a slip roller. Hydralics from an old tractor into a louver press.

If, or when, you get something going on that thumb nail shrinker I would love to have some more information.

I can't think of anything that would be more handy.
