Shop made ring roller.

Hi all,

I had to do some rolling a few weeks ago to make a prototype for a customer. Just made do with what I had for the prototype but they now want a few more parts so thought I'd make myself a little ring roller.

Primarily designed for rolling 80 /100mm wide flat but I shoved a bit of 50x25x3 box through it to see what it would do and I recon that's about it's limit.

Wish I had this when I built my Haynes. Would have been great for doing the rolled piece on the side of the chassis by your shoulders.

Hope you enjoy the video.

Impressive skills! I really like the way you used to machine itself to make the very last component. I thought it's a bit like lifting yourself up by pulling your socks up.

Why do they call Port Harcourt "The Garden City"?...... Becauase they can't spell Stramash.
