    Looking good. I bet you'll find things to roll that will make you appreciate that larger wheel.

    Re: new tool for my shop

    I rolled some flat stock to make wheels for a project I want to build. The large ones are 10" diameter rolled from 1/4" X 2" flat and the smaller ones are from 3/16" X 2". I roller the wheel in 2 halves then cut off the waste ends then welded them together. I want to make a rail road cart coffee table.

    You will love the rail road cart, as a cart it turns on a dime and goes straight without pulling sideways, i made my welding cart on the same platform design. swivell wheels at the end might be a good toe catcher

    fantastic roller you made there

    Is that the cart you built or one you are modeling from?

    Image was pulled from the net, I would think the name on the side is the builder, maybe they sell a kit?
    I plan to make changes like a top the has a cantilever hinge top, with an inlay in the top.
    I downloaded a copy of the file and cut this eagle (mine is not painted yet).

    What diameter are your rollers?

    Correct. Most tubing is made by rolling a long sheet of metal into a tube but that will leave a seam lengthwise in the tube. Wire and DOM tubing is drawn or pulled from a hole in a vat of semi-liquid metal so there are no seams in it. If you put a button or mandrel in the middle of the hole and draw the metal then it will form a hollow tube, hence DOM tube. DOM tubing is stronger than ordinary tubing and the inner and outer surfaces are smooth and precise.

    Your definition would be extruded or seamless tubing most likely aluminum.

    DOM has a seam

    My roller diameter is 2.250"
    Here are the larger wheels finished (less paint/powder coat) and other parts for the cart cut with my CNC plasma.

    Very nice ring roller you built Acourtjester.

    The railroad carts you reference were built out of our shop. Here is the build thread.http://weldingweb.com/vbb/showthread.php...ee-Table-Build
