Details

This large roller is designed to be heavy, rigid, and versatile. It’s made of steel plates which are laser cut and then welded together. The roller weighs just under eight pounds. The overall dimensions are 7 1/2" tall, 6" wide, and 7 1/4" long.

This roller uses multiple bearings and low-profile stainless steel hardware to provide you with an ideal rolling surface at all diameters without any need for adjustment. You can go from centering wig wag balls on a 4mm rod all the way up to melting and tooling some 75mm+ tubing without skipping a beat.

The middle set of bearings are spaced to cradle your handles larger than 9mm, making the roller easy to use without having handles jump around. The inner set of bearings can roll rods as thin as 2mm. The outer set of bearings can be moved between two alternative positions to provide different feels on larger tubing.

The open hand-space between wheels allows for the use of many different hand techniques and makes the re-grabbing of handles easy. The gap your hand goes into is 5-3/4" wide, allowing even large-handed people to use the roller comfortably.

The bearings are made from 420 stainless steel. They spin smooth with very little resistance. The bearings are size 608 bearings—the exact same bearings used in common skateboards and rollerblades. The bearings use rubber side shields to keep dust out of the bearings. The rubber side shields are removable, making it possible to add oil lube for maintenance (this shouldn't need to be done but once every five years or so).

The visual appearance of the bearings’ rubber side shields does vary. Sometimes they have black lettering and sometimes the letters are white. This roller is powder coated once with a chameleon rainbow color and then again with a thick layer of hard/durable clear coat. The rainbow chameleon color changes between brilliant colors when viewed under intense lighting but will look gray-black when viewed in gentle light or a shadow.

The powder coating can withstand 350 °, making it able to hangout on the bench during super-hot melts, but it does have its limits. Placing any hot glass directly on the powder coating will scar the surface of the coating.

The feet are threaded and can be extended to level the roller on uneven surfaces. Tightening the thumb nuts makes the roller sturdy/wobble free with the feet extended. The feet can also be used to raise the height of the roller by about 3/4". (We also have extra-long feet available, sold separately, that can boost this roller’s height by up to 2”.) The slots on either side of the roller are intended to allow for the use of future attachments.

Please be aware that small visual imperfections in our coatings are not uncommon. A few light scratches, a little scuff mark, a small air bubble, a couple raised specs, or other visual imperfections may be present in the clear coat of your roller. These imperfections are typically hard to detect and never affect performance.
