Rolling Steps

  1. Adjust the radius by turning the knobs on the back of the machine. This adjusts the distance between the rollers.
  2. Adjust the amount of pinch using the knobs on the front left of the machine for materials of different thickness. If the gap between the rollers is too far apart the material will slip on the rollers.
  3. Begin by pulling the right side of the top roller out of its slot.
  4. Insert your piece that you would like to roll between the rollers.
  5. Re-secure the top roller inside of the slot prior to rolling.
  6. Slowly rotate the handle until you have rolled to the desired radius. If the initial radius is not the desired radius, re-roll at a slightly tighter radius.
  7. Unlock the top roller to slide your rolled metal off the end of roller.
