A friend gave me two rims and tires that would fit my Gravely so I rolled a 3 x 13 in hoop on the old rim roller.



Welded it up and cut it in half making 2 1-1/2in rings,used a 6in hole saw (noisy)cut the center out.



8 9-1/2 carriage bolts.





Duals for old Gravely.

That turned out nice. A roller is not something that gets used a lot but I would love to have one.

Nice! Definitely a savings there doing it yourself.

Nice job, Ron, that roller certainly wasn't made last week.

It was made to roll the rims for wagons so it wasn't last week.

I'd love to meet the people who have worked with that in the past.

I did it freehand with a 4in grinder with cutoff wheel.

Amazing!!! Great job Ron. You must have a lot of patience.

Money can't buy you happiness.
It can however buy you a beer.
And that is close enough.
