pinky, i saw your post on $5...

This is sooo cool, you have a chance to learn a lot, and have fun doing it. I'll help in any way I can!

Old guys taught me lots... i'll pass it all on... i owe them that.

If I had to be an accountant, I would have eaten a gun by now. Good job, but not for me.

Let's make something, and bleed all over it.

I'd get the roller material, and the channel, and show him what's up.

He'll know what to do. You want the roller to be full width between the pillow blocks so it will stay centered. With a lathe, he can step the roller down at the ends for 3/4" or 1/2" pillowblocks. Cheaper, and they roll easier.

any steel will work, but "cold rolled" will last longer.

yes, he can. actually much closer...lol

you want the roller to be smaller where it goes into the pillowblocks. I didn't mention that cuz we didn't have a lathe before... but 1/2 or 3/4 Pblocks have less resistance and are much smaller in all dimensions.

Once he has turned it down, he can knurl it with less trouble too.

Try to be there for this, P. I started on a lathe, and if you have a knack for it, you might work this into a good summer job... just like he did.
