Intro: Manual Rolling Mill
There is almost nothing to describe in this mills. Initially the mills
were classified into classes, designed for purposes as follows: rolling of filigree, for alignment and correction of sheet materials. But due to the fact I didn`t designed fancy shaped streams, these settings were then useful while rolling of materials for sculpting.
I mean burnable plastics Super Sculpey, Fimo and Tsvetik (made in Russia). These solutions are suitable for sculpture clay. It will be convenient if there were 2-composites compounds of type Epoxy Putty, the proceed surfaces should be cleaned up and covered by plastics. I made different regulation for each side. Because, maybe will make cookies of different thickness :))
But - to be serious – it makes construction easier.
In in-plant-made mills, there is a control option presented by toggle
switch. Then, rotation goes through the gear – to both of shoulders. Here, each shoulder should be aligned individually. I have set of calibrated plates for this purpose, it makes selection issue not complicated.
All the rest is shown on picture.
This device has one disadvantage: Handle has to be rotate manually, device will be set on somebody`s edge of tables. It seems to be a little bit complicated – but it`s ok. Why should our life be so simple? :)
Step 1: Detailing
How to make homemade of detail in the drawings.
In addition, there are the following standard components:
-bearings- №629 D= 26/9 mm
-springs D=14x28 somewhere about
Handle design and adjusting screws at your discretion :0)
