    Cool Small Ring Roller

    I needed a roller to roll my O Scale RR Track for the bridges i sell and since i can't buy one off the shelf i had to make it. Its only 5" tall but you can get the idea and make one bigger for a ring roller. Here are some pics of the roller and the parts. I made every part except the 1/4" lock nuts and the handle that was from a metal dumpster. It took me about 15 hours to design and build...Bob

    Great job on your roller.Sometimes it's nice to have the exact machine you need for the job. Pride of building it yourself is very gratifying & you get reminded of that every time you use it. Thanks for sharing.

    I have 4 lathes, 2 SB 10 inchers and 2 Craftsman 6 inchers. I could have made the nuts but i wanted the nylon lockers, i was going to dimple some nuts to lock them but i didn't want to screw up the bolt threads...Bob

    Default Ring roller

    Nice job on your roller. I have a larger version and have considered making a small one like yours for doing small parts and pieces. The big one is nice but is a pain when trying to make small items. Dave
