    This was my version of a slip roll. Three rolls, two adjustable, one for material thickness and the other for determining finished diameter of item being rolled. Off-gear side can be opened to remove...

    Yes, the roll pictured is a pyramid roll, hence no need to open an end. If I recall, the side plates are 1/2". I did build a 'slip roll' which I can take some pictures of, showing my take on gearing...

    3/32" 7018 works perfectly on 11 gauge. The tougher part is actually finding 11 gauge plate..10 gauge is the standard in my world, and I've run miles of 3/32" 7018 on that, but your mileage may vary....

    The drive itself most likely has accommodations for a E-stop, and one that has the ability to brake quickly, versus killing the input power, which makes very little sense...IMHO.

    Poor old Rons has a perpetual hard-on for the phrase 'Chicom', which went out of style in the late '60s. He really is predictable.:rolleyes5:
