Hardwood rollers? If I only had a lathe.

I wonder if I can do it with kitchen rolling pins...I could screw a discarded front hub to one side,
rear to the other, and connect the front roller to the rear with a bike chain. Hah! The answer to my
"Roll your own rollers" thread, finally!

It might actually work. I'll have to photo-document it if I do it.

Materials: Three 2x4s, three kitchen rolling pins, 4 front hubs, 2 rear hubs with
cassettes/freewheels, a couple chains to join, an old derailer as a tension arm, misc screws.

I may be more coherent, but I'm no more sane than you are.

>stones-metallica-savoy brown tapes wud set yawl up right.

Stones-Megadeth-Sawyer Brown more likely. Throw in some Toby Keith for good measure.

Hmm...gotta get some damn rollers and try Megadeth as motivational music.

A good rolling pin should have bearings built in; no need to add the hubs. And you could eliminate
the chain if you spun the rolling pin with the back wheel of the bike while someone else carved a
groove for a belt. Sort of a dangerous homemade lathe.

I don't suspect the bearings or the roundness of the rolling pin are much good for the required
speed, though.

I wouldn't use a good one; remember, I'm trying to be a cheap ******* here.

Wow! Human Powered Lathe. I could make a whole setup out of it...then I'd have a nice lathe. I
could...umm...turn stuff.

Maybe I have to go back to the previous idea of schedule 40 PVC pipe. Any idea if that's
sufficiently round, or for that matter, strong?

It's not typically very round. Take a short scrap piece and roll it fast over a smooth floor. It
might be strong enough, so maybe you could put it together and use your human-powered lathe to
round it out.

Roller music is googleable. Vivaldi's never mentioned.

Dear John,

A larger model of this kind of roller would let you roam freely around the shop:

Alas, Vivaldi wrote nothing for hamsters.

Quite. The "Rote Priest" appealed mostly to lemmings.
