Demonstration

Demonstrate you can safely setup the Ring Roller. You will then proceed to cut a 5" long piece of 1/4" steel rod. Roll this material into the smallest radius possible. When rolling the material remember to keep your fingers away from the rollers to keep from smashing your fingers.

General Procedure

  1. Adjust the knob on the right to adjust the radius, loosen the handle on the left if it restricting you from adjusting the right one.
  2. Make sure both knobs are secure and tightened before rolling, always start by rolling the largest radius, and work your way up from there.
  3. Insert the bar between the rollers.
  4. Turn the crank to roll the metal bar or rod.
  5. Start with a large radius and continue to make the radius smaller every time you roll. If you attempt to roll a small radius all at once, the rod may make a corkscrew shape instead of a circle.
  6. You have completed the roll when the two ends overlap each other by a couple of inches to account for the ends of the bar or rod that stay straight.
