    For the setscrews on the dies, I replaced them with setscrews that have the little dimple cutting end, and drilled the shaft just enough to allow the setscrew to insert into the shaft, I also used a jam nut on these same setscrews so they canít back out!

    If the set screw holes have enouph meat so 2 set screws can be set into the same hole after you drill the indentation into the shaft the 2nd set screw acts as a jamb screw.

After a while, I burnt up my cut off saw. I took it back and they gave me another one. It wasn't long before I burnt that one up. When I was packing it up to take back and get a refund this time, I could not find the receipt. I called the store, and they said bring it back, and we can give you a store credit for the price. I thought that was very comendable on their part. Junk power tools for sure, but everything else I have gotten there worked just fine. Shop crane works great, roller seat is great, and the cheap trailer holding my Bobcat 250 is just perfect for what I wanted.
    I've used their chop saw for several years, I know they are power hogs, and absolutely need 12 gauge wire minimum extension cord, and not a very long cord at that. Of course even my Dewalt gets hot if too small a cord is used, that one cost me $100.00 for a new armature to find out.
    Your right about the return policy, better than average

    Anyone know where to get dies for this HF Roller? The only dies I see on HarborFreight's site are for 1/2" square tubing.

    It comes with the round tube dies, and all they have as far as I know, is the 1/2" square dies. They could be made into virtually about anything the machine could accept.

    The trick is finding someone who's willing to widen the 1/2" dies (which can go for as little as $39 on sale) to 5/8, 1", etc.

    Anyone?

    Considering making my own roller. Anybody know the dimensions of the HF dies? They are way cheaper than Eastwood's dies! I'd appreciate a PM.

    Shoot me a PM with the dimensions you want and I'll fire them over to you.
