    Adjustable bead roller stop/fence

    Hi All
    I was building a bead roller which came to an abrupt halt when I fell ill as did all my projects. So with my rekindled interest I was up at 4:30 am (please don't ask me why ) and decided to progress the bead roller further forward while waiting for the coupler to arrive from China for the motorisation of the rotary table.

    Initially I was going to turn some dies but thought my time would be better spent finishing the main chassis of the project so went with making a anti flexing brace and incorporating the stop/fence (is it a fence or a stop or both )

    So the stock was cut, blocked up and machined and all painted by 9:00 am.

    I hope to do some more work on the rotary table this week and fall back onto the bead roller and get this finished out of the way so I can use it on the water tank on my 3" scale Foden steam wagon. Mind you I still have to think about how I am going to mount the industrial clutched sewing machine motor which I have got to power the roller. A job for another day.

    I have included some photos of the fence \stop below.
