A piece of channel, some flat bar, some angle, a six foot length of 1-1/2" black pipe, some easy to find hardware items, a few simple tools, and the easy to follow plans in this book are all you will need to build this 24" slip roll.
The machine detailed in this manual is simple and inexpensive to build. Not only does it look professional it will do a professional job as well. Straight and tapered cylinders from 22 gauge mild steel can easily be formed as well as 20 gauge in shorter lengths.
A few of the features are, bronze bushings throughout for simple and smooth operation. A removable top roll making the finished work easy to remove. An adjustable bottom roll to enable the machine to handle different gauge material. The rear roll adjusts up and down to control the diameter of the cylinder to be formed. The rear roll can even be adjusted at an angle for tapered cylinder or cone forming.
Costing hundreds of dollars less than its commercial counter part, this machine is a valuable asset to any work shop, and the best thing of all, you gain the satisfaction of building it yourself.
