    Liked this one so much I went out and made one based on the idea, I did turn up come bushings that can be switched out on the pivot and roller positions to accommodate different radii .
    Thank you for the inspiration, Al

    Hi Al,

    I'm glad you liked it.
    Sounds good and with more possibilities.
    Drop some photos here, if they exist, and you want to share.

    Regards,
    Bill
