    Tank Turning Rolls - Profax Tr5000

    I have 2 sets of tank turning rolls. I no longer use them. They are Profax TF5000. Rated for 5000 lbs per set. 4"-60" diameter. $2500 per set. One set pictured. Second set is identical. I'm in Houston. I will ship.

    Cause I'm sure there nicer than anything you could make with your harbor freight mig welder, some people make money with their tools, also look at what they are before making a stupid comment a little more than a couple shopping cart wheels screwed into a piece of plywood, no I don't know the original poster

    It is very simple to build a set rollers NOT from Plywood using a drill for power to rollers note gear down the speed with worm gear box
    As for welder I have owned in pass very good welder the large I have owned was a Miller 750 with wire feed and gun
    Today I have very small with limit space and not interested taking on large work any more

    Regardless,

    I think the point here is:

    If you don't have any interest in the item for sale.... Then Move along.

    I was thinking the ask questions group
    Not hide under a rock like a fool does
    Why this better than a shop fab roller that is far cheaper

    FYI The Miller 750 was mistake the most ever use was are 300 amp welding beams

    With a machine torch and HT85 or so you could make up one Hell of a plasma pipe bevel thingy.

    If I need a tool or a machine, and I have the option to buy it or make it myself, These are the things I think about. Will mine work well enough to do the job I need it to do? Is the money saved building your own worth the time invested? In the long run, will I save any money? Can I afford to buy one? I used to try to build everything. Now, I only build if I have to.

    Also, sometimes we don’t have the tools to build what we need.
