Anyone Make A Slab Roller?

Recommended Posts

Ken the cable setup is very similar to the Brent/Amaco I had in my classroom. But then that one costs a bit more this day and age. I think ours was the SR 14 with its own stand.

 Thank you all.  That is what I was looking for.   I have spare metal laying around from welding.  Was not sure how go get pressure on top roller but see now how to use lower roller to make it happen.

Pres, the cable set up is the same configuration as the Brent. All the parts were bought at hardware stores. Still using it.

Aloha, Ken

I've thought about doing this, and still might make my own slab roller.  But then just using a rolling pin or large hardwood dowel from Home Depot and some slabs of wood for thickness seems easier.  But I like building things.  May be a winter project.

Wanted to show that I got it built with scrap metal I had. spent $7 on wire crimps and eye hooks. Will serve my purpose well. Thanks Ken.    It has detachable legs for storage and transport.  Still have to put handle on it and find another shim sheet.
