    Default Corner Rounder

    I have a company I do aluminum signs for that recently decided they want all future signs to have rounded corners.
    I have been rounding them with an electric shear to get by and it's getting a little old doing it that way.
    I bought the base of a 1 1/2" corner rounder. I didn't get
    the hand lever deal because I wanted to make it foot operated. So,
    I bought a porta power to operate it. Eventually I want to get an air over
    hydraulic pump but this will do for now.







    Got it all built & did a test fit on the table. (Put a new PVC top on the table too so it doesn't scratch the aluminum like the other tables do.

    Tore it all apart & sent it off to the paint shop for a deluxe black rattle can paint job.



    All back together.



    Gave it a try.......works....... This will be much faster.

    It's supposed to handle 1/8" aluminum. Not sure what ga. steel, I don't think I'll be using it for that.

    Made a catch can so I wouldn't have little corners layin' all over the shop floor. (and gettin' them stuck in my shoe.....and taking them in the house........and....... )

    neat. could you link me to the exact model that you bought from that Lassco Company? Thanks. I'm very interested in getting one, I always wondered about a nice corner cutting like this. 1/8" aluminum is more than enough for me for what i need it for. Thanks a bunch.

    I wanted to get this unit finished so I'd be ready for the next sign order. I got the idea of using a clutch master cylinder instead of the porta power pump. But, when I looked at the capacity it looked like that wasn't gonna' work. Then I found a master cylinder at the parts store (not sure what it fits. Ol' Chevy truck maybe?). I teed both lines together to get the flow I needed & built a frame & linkage out of some of the scrap in that 5 gal. bucket that I just knew I'd use some day. All that's left is to build a shroud for the pump assembly so I don't damage it throwin' stuff under the bench.

    It's not fast, fast but it works and it's hands free.
