    Thanks for the help Mark.

    I was going to use and under bottle jack but after looking at your two different designs.....I'm thinking on top with a all thread might be easier and better.

    I built a 36" plate roller that I use by hand, it works great Its only been done for a few months so I dont know all of its capacities but we did roll some 1/2 x 6 plate and 36" of 10 gage, obviously not in 1 pass but working it back and forth gets the job done.

    Default Beautiful Work!

    67 chevelle I went to the shopfloortalk forum and reviewed your beautiful project. I got about 5 projects just from seeing the pictures of your shop!
    Beautiful work on the roller. I think I'll start with a welding bench similar to the one pictured. Yours seems to have a drawer supported by some angle stock resting on the square tubing frame. Is it a sliding drawer? What is the purpose of the piano hinge? Is that 1/2" plate on the top? Thanks for any help you can provide! BTW I signed up over at shopfloortalk and used '67 chevelle' as the referring member and got 'invalid referrer'. Maybe I spelled you wrong or put in an extra blank space. DrBob

    DrBob,

    The cart you're referring to is a small roll around work cart.



    The drawer you see is a fold down table that used to be in a mail truck. I used some drawer slides to mount a couple of them under the tops of some carts I built.

    I'd never heard the term "piano hinge" before ( I gotta get out more )

    The hinge is the backside of the drawer, I just didn't take it off before I mounted the drawer.

    The top is 1/4", It's only meant for the light duty stuff.

    Here's a better image of the one I use for my TIG machine
    ( I know.. It's red , both of my MIG's are blue though)

    Default Thanks Mark

    I'd never heard the term "piano hinge" before

    Well it's the term my shop teacher used to describe a long hinge of that type.
    I guess some version of it is used on the tops of pianos - I can only play the radio myself BTW I took metal shop in the 1950s so maybe it's called something else now

    I'm building a bench to hold projects for welding with my new MM180 which welds rings around my old Lincoln.

    Another newbie question. I keep reading people buying stuff from a place they refer to as HF - wazzat? (I know I'll kick myself when I hear the answer).

    Thanks for posting the picture of your bench.

    HF is Harbor Freight DrBob.

    Some of there stuff is a level below China made. But for some disposable tools it will get you by.

    Went there to get chip brushes...walked by the air comp stuff and though **** need a quick chuck so I bought a pack. Third time I released the tool from it, it flew apart...wild hose about took the family jewels. That's kinda HF in a nut shell.

    Ed--Vertical adjustmant range in mine is about 5". Horizontal spacing for the un-driven rolls is 10, 15, or 20". These weren't from any calculation. Just seemed about right.
