Something else for the mill
« on: August 09, 2017, 12:00:46 am »
Our local Kmart is closing. A friend texted me and said to go check out what they had. I did and somehow or other this stuff wound up on the back of my pickup.
 

  

 
Not sure it'll fit, but I think the incline might prove to be nice.
Anybody using this kind of roller around the mill, and have suggestions?
The one with incline stretches to 27', the other is 24'

on the lookout for something similar, very nice score!! 8) I was thinking of getting a higher output mill, but material flow on and off the mill is the biggest factor to get dialed in first to make certain that all the mill's capacity is being tapped, prior to upgrading, though and upgrade would be fun, (lso expensive), i will keep the search going for some roller table sections for myself first.  Anyone ever used the ball rollers? I could build a table with those on them, just wondered how they would work, I know for loading freight in a cargo aircraft configuration, the ball rollers work well.

They've got 4 straight 10' sections without legs that I made an offer on. But I haven't heard back from them. So I guess they didn't accept my offer.  :D
