    Hi Bob, Guys,

    Michael has done a superb job . You must be quite proud of it.

    Just don't get a hernia lifting that machine ! It looks like at least 100Kg.
    Best Regards:
    Baron J.

    Yes he has, and all credit to him, no I won't be lifting it is staying right were it is ( it is on wheels now ) it weighs 77kilos.
    The less than perfect paint job is my contribution.

    My daughter is into jewellery and has a rolling mill and I have been thinking of motorising it. Could you tell me what the motor and gearbox unit is on yours? It looks to be what I am envisaging.

    Peter I will take a pic of the label tomorrow, the label on the gearbox is a bit hard to access now it is on the bottom of the unit, I am pretty sure the label on the motor label has the all the same info
    it is a 3ph SEW Euro-drive, they don't come cheap I was fortunate that my mate had one from a job that never happened so I got it for nearly half price.
    Although I have 3ph it runs from a VFD as it is simple convenient way to control speed etc while still maintaining torque.

    I picked up a rolling mill for my daughter years ago as she was doing work experience with a friend of my wife who is a jeweller. She seemed a bit interested at the time?
    Anyhow it sat in the shed unused for years, the cast legs went to a mate for his Ewheel.
    My son who is a sparky started scoring large left over cable.
    We made a basic stripper with a piece of square tube and a hard screw.
    Pulling the cable thru that was very hard work, but he got $800 plus for scrap.
    He then gets a heap more and asks about a stripper.
    He bought a hard wheel online and I modded the rolling mill in the old Macson.
    Cut the lower roller into steps and cut teeth in them with an angle grinder.
    Works well, $2000 last lot at the scrapyard.
    If he gets more wed better motorise it.

    Looks like it may be an old Cavallin
