That's very nice. What are the set-screws for on the ends of the rollers?

The set screws on the rollers are to lock in the 1/2 inch pins on each end. I need to hold them secure when I knurled the rollers.

Nice job. You could probably motorize that real easy. Where did you get the rollersT What was the total cost to you and time spent?

I made the rollers out of 2 inch aluminum then they were hard annodized coated.WE had most of the Aluminum in the shop so all I had to buy was the Handle $6 The lexan $34, and the aluminim angle pieces for the corners$10. So all total about $50. not sure how much time it took exactly becauseI did it a little at a time 1/2 hour here 1/2 hour there.
