Taffy Turner Bench Roller - Griffin Glass Tools
The roller is made of anodized aluminum, 2″ brass wheels, stainless steel bearings and hardware. The wheels can be set to three different spacing positions in order to accommodate different diameter tubing. The overall length is just over 7″ with 5 1/2″ of space in between the two sets of wheels. The height of the work piece is 7″ off the bench when it is rested on the wheels. The Taffy turner also features a flip up metal D- ring, which will allow the tube end of a work piece to be secured to the roller hands free.
The spacing between the two sets of wheels on the Taffy Turner allows for the soft glass “Crawl” technique. They are unlike other rollers that force you to keep your hand open. Using this “crawl” technique, you can work larger pieces of glass for longer periods of time with minimal fatigue. This tool can easily break down into a much smaller foot print for traveling.
