    Default Ring roller

    I'm looking for a ring roller that can roll 12 X 3 flat, to a minimum of 135 ID and am wondering if anyone has one that they either no longer use or have upgraded to a larger one, that they would be interested in selling, please?
    I could make one, but don't really have the time or equipment at the moment. If I can't get one from here, would someone be interested in making a simple on for me, please? Payment will be made of course.
    Thanks,
    Kryn

    Hare and Forbes have a sale atm and its $90 I dont think anyone here could make one for less. I'm sure it's limited but says it's capacity is 25 x 3.

    Hi Kryn,

    I have one of these rollers ( 25 x 3 and not a smidgin more in thickness- ) It will roll 12 x 3 easily. The rollers have a shoulder on them and its just a matter of keeping your 12 x 3 pressed up against those shoulders.

    I have rolled a number of 3mm rings down to 70mm with my unit.

    Its a bargain too I paid $160 at Ozme Years back. Watch out for plastic and where the screw goes through the slot. On some iterations plastic has been substituted for steel on that component with the slot in it.

    A phone call will easily sort that out.

    Thanks for the replies Ralph and Graham, that type isn't really what I was looking for as they require constant adjustment to roll the flat. Sorry, I should have explained it a bit better in the OP. The type I'm looking for is similar to
