  • Made a Chop saw and small roller.

    Here are a few pics of the chop saw i made the parts for 10 years ago but just got finished. I use it to cut the stainless steel train track for my train bridges. Then i roll it to the right radius on the little track roller. It was hand powered i just added the drive setup from another roller...Bob

    Bob.

    That is COOL!

    Yeah, I have a few projects that have been lying around awhile myself

    For the work on the train stuff you do, I'm sure it works much better than a big, cumbersome one with a thick blade.

    Still, after the shaper work I have seen you do, you were already a hero in my book.

    Good stuff.

      Very nice! What ratio is the gearbox on the roller?

        Very cool idea, the power roller would be a real nice thing to have.

        Is it just my computer or everyones, on the first picture it turns black from the corner and works its way across?

            Its 60:1 Its the same drive set up that i use on my scroller and my Tennsmith slip rolls. I just move it from machine to machine that i need.

            Yes the corner is dark don't know why i thought it was my thumb over the lens on my kids phone...Bob
