Operating A Small Slip Roll

If you like to work with sheet metal a slip roll is a very useful machine for forming circular and conical shapes out of sheet metal. Their are other ways of doing this with hand methods, but a slip roll makes for a easy, quick, and very neat job. Good quality rolls can be expensive, The import market has brought the price down quite a bit, with varied quality.

There are many plans around the web to make your own set of rolls, I have at least a couple I would like to upload in the future.

Following is a nice article on the operation of a small slip roll from the Winter 1954 PM Shop Notes.
