  • Tool gloat

    Not really machining related but still metal working. Picked up this 30" Niagara slip roller. Paid $100 for it.

              No, the table didn't come with it. All the steel for the frame was free though, so I guess that is a gloat as well.

                Great gloat. Now I'll be looking out for the motorisation project.

                I don't understand why the grooves in one roller don't match with the other. I'd have thought the grooves would match for bending rod. Maybe one of the rollers is end for end ?

                    I thought that one roller was end on end as well when I first saw it. I found an old brochure online for these rollers that explained it. The 2 rollers that have the grooves together are for forming wire or rod(that I knew). The roller that has the groove on the one side alone is if you are forming a cylinder that has a wire bead already in the sheet metal.

                    These were offered as powered from the factory. The brochure was kind enough to state the HP and rpm of the motor which is 2 less pieces of the puzzle I will have to figure out. Once I get back to work I have to take a look, there might be a motor and gearbox to drive it in the obsolete bin.

                    It kind of funny, you would think there would be a lot of these rollers around but rarely do you see one for sale.

                      Nice find! Surely worth to gloat.
                      if you can't take criticism, do the right thing.
