slip roll stand

Post by Scott » Wed Aug 25, 2004 1:21 am

Here is my stand I built with a little help from my Brother in-law . I made it out of 0.125 steel. I am going to add some expanded metal for some extra storage. [img]/ubb/images/graemlins/cool.gif"%20alt="[/img]
I welded some tubing on the ends for extra strength because the roll itself weighs 500 lbs. The angle of the stand does not seem to get in the way at all. I figured sheetmetal would be a fast way to build it and keep it flat on the top.

Nice build Scott. I immediately thought, what a great shape to porcupine up for hanging "C" clamps, tools, etc. but only if they wouldn't become knee-knockers.
Just because you don’t believe it - doesn’t mean it’s not so.

suggestion>
bend up some shelves made of ex-metal with short angle sides/ends of the width to slide inside the vee at various heights. weld some short angles in the inside of the vee to support the shelves. now you have visible slide-out storage for tools, small pieces of stock, parts-in-process, mating parts needed to be kept nearby to check fit as you work the roller, etc.

alternative - slide-out tool racks : make up 2 or 3 vertical pieces of exmetal supported on roller guides located near the top of the vee -( kitchen cabinet drawer rollerguides work fine for this as long as you dont overload them) so that you can hang tools on them, make a set for each end of the base if you like the idea, or a set of 1/2 length shelves at one end, slide-out tool racks at the other , short racks above shelves, whatever.

Marty,
It is a grizzly roll and I do like it for the money. I bet a American version would be super spendy. It is a 5 ft model. It seems to bend beyond the 16 gauge it is rated for. I had no problem bending 0.125 stainless but not anywhere near 5ft though. [img]/ubb/images/graemlins/shocked.gif"%20alt="[/img] I like it and think it is pretty well made.

Marty your stuff will be done tomorrow. It is being bent on some real old American iron. [img]/ubb/images/graemlins/cool.gif"%20alt="[/img]

Would be nice to have doing the Hillman Street rod...not sure I can justify the expense though. I know I will need a transmission tunnel built, I think I could use a 12" slip roll for everything else. I need to find or borrow a 4' brake and either build or buy a bead roller so I can make the firewall and floor pans. I'm tempted to buy the Low Buck Tools Bead roller....it will have to do 16gauge.

here is one that I built for my rolls, about 12 years ago- has it really been that long?
It is framed in square tubing and angle, and then has galvanized sheet for the sides and shelves- probably 16 ga or 18ga. It has a little shelf off to one side to hold the pexto rotary machine, and hooks down the side for the wrench and different rolls for the pexto.
