    Just finished my slip-roll...

    I've spent most of my time, for the last 3 weeks building this 24" slip roll. Modelled on Vince Gingery's design, but with 2" heavy-wall tubes, with solid ends, and 3/4" bearings rather than 1/2". Should easily handle 16 ga. material, and probably 14ga. I made a few other improvements, also.

    Jim,
    Great job and very well made and finished. I like finishing touches with the blued parts.

    Many thanks, Paul. I still need to paint it, but it's too cold in the shop...might have to wait until spring, unless we get a heat wave (fat chance)....LOL

    Many thanks, Captain Ward. It will work fine for my purposes. The finish on the rollers could be better. I turned the OD to be concentric with the ID. I was using a lathe dog that was too big for the job, and I finally figured out it was so out-of-balance, it was screwing up the finish. However, it'll work OK....just a bit ugly...Ha!

    Beautiful work Jim! The support arms are a piece of art and the fit an finish are eye candy. I couldn't imaging 14GA would be any problem at all. Thanks for sharing a great project! ~PJ

    I did draw up the endplates, and would be happy to send that after I convert it to a PDF file. I'd probably need your email addy, but might be able to post it here...not sure on that. I'll get back on later today. These rollers are fairly simple to build...just takes lots of machining time. I also have Vince Gingery's book, and would sell that for $20.00, shipped, if anybody is interested.
