    I bet it has to do with the government not looking at the line items on the returns to determine your category.

    I made a bunch of money in the first half of the year when I was working for 3M, then worked for another outfit, then worked on building the shop. So since I spent more than I made, it didn't work out well for me with the stimulus check. But I got to pay more in property taxes...

    you will find the roller much nicer and easy-er to use after you add a ring.
    I got me one of those 5/8 rods so I will definately do that...thanks for the tip.

    [QUOTE=KEENAVV;158485]Thank you LOUD GREEN VEGATABLE. I just ordered one./QUOTE]

    I got it. The outer box was fine, the inner-orignal box- looked like it had been dropped 50'. The top was so bent the shaft wouldn't go through the bearings even after loosening them. After 3 phone calls I got an RMA# ,re packed it and FED EX is to pick it up for return tomarrow.

    That sucks.

    Hope the next one arrives in good working order.

    They do work good.

    Yeah, I thought mine wudn't gonna work either, but when I loosened all of the 8 screws the rod was able to fit. I rolled a 5/8 inch all threaded rod for the ring...pitiful I say. The ring roller works, but I started the first part of it to small so it's not exactly circular But it is easier than just using the handles.

    Unhappy bummer, hope the next one is ok.

    seems like a lot of them arrive beat up a bit or a lot. a little fiddling usualy gets it togather and working. i suspect its the size of the box VS how heavy it is. it gets 1/2 way picked up not expecting it to be so heavy and as such the picker dose not have a good hold and down it goes. or it could just be crappy service. but when you get one working you will be glad you got threw the hassle and have a neat new toy.
    thanks for the help
    ......or..........
    hope i helped

    I just got ring roller#2 and the inner box also looks like it has been dropped. Not as bad as the first one. The shaft wont go through bearings but is much closer than #1.In the AM I'll loosen the bearing bolts and try again.

    The shaft went in when the flange bearings were loosened. The cotter pin had to be ground to fit the shaft and handle hub. I am going to drill new mounting holes in the base to match the base of my HF bender. I already have shields with bolts in the driveway and garage. Is this what you call a hijack????
