Robert - looking good there. I bet you can't wait to build a stand a start working that puppy.

Matt, I'd like to accent the cast "theme" with some legs like these, but going that direction limits what a person could do with anvil storage.. That and the price they want on Ebay for them, highway robbery..

Beautiful machines, and I know Peter has spent a lot of time and money making sure that they perform as well as a full sized cast machine.

Lucky boys!

Hint Hint Peter....cast iron legs for the wheeling machines.

Easy to cast not complicated they are thin you can add them inside the crate and improve the profit margins.

Bringing the very cool factor way up the scale.

Many of the "well heeled" that are able to purchase the wheels would likely just have to have such an accessory.

Default Assorted details about Peters wheeling machines

Jimmy Matthews and I worked on building the shipping 'boxes' for the wheeling machines that are going to Denver and L.A. Mark Seybold form Tennessee arrived mid day and loaded up his. We got Jimmy's wheel together and tried it out and it looks great to me. I measured a few dimensions and determined that this wheeling machine has a 27-1/2" throat, and the height from the mounting surface to the wheel convergent point is about 15-1/2". The stand that I made is 34" tall making the operating height on this machine to be about 49-1/2". Note in the next to the last picture that there are long adjusting screws beneath the cradle 'legs'. I looked more closely and there are pins that run up thru the cradle legs and are able to raise either side in a manner than will 'rotate' the lower anvil relative to the upper wheel. Perhaps Peter can jump in here and explain more about how to use this feature. The cradle width is a little wider than the anvil to make room for this angular movement.

Gentlemen ...that really looks good as a matter of interest how is the US top wheel fitting on the shaft? Any movement? is it to tight? What is the run out like ? is the spacer between the two bearings OK...............(I just like to make sure that all is working well)
Do not forget the fact that it does not need to be squeezed to get shape up .......Will remember the door skin me and you made in Oblong?

The top wheel by Joe Andrews looks Very nice and fits very well also. The hammer in the photo was not required to get the wheel in place, I just had it started at a little bit of an angle. I forgot to insert the sleeve between the bearings and was puzzled at first that the wheel seemed a little 'tight'. Every thing match fit very well. I will call Joe in the morning and thank him for his nice work! That piece that Jimmy and I are working on was intended to be similar to the door panel You and I worked on at Oblong, and it worked out quite well the first time we tried it. One area was just a 'tad' lower than it should have been and we re-inserted it and rolled gently in that area and it brought it up to match the rest of the panel with no marks. Jimmy still has a smile on his face.

The screws and pins on the cradle are there for a few reasons, first is to be able to tilt the lower anvils either way in order to put a sharp line on a panel, second... you can increase the height of the lower anvil by turning booth screws equally and rise the lower anvil towards the top wheel, and then get the clearance again by adjusting the lower shaft down by the bottom turning wheel, that will give a extra 1/1 and half inch clearance from the casting. also it's very handy when using a taller and narrow ''kideney '' shaped lower anvil in order to reach when making deep tall and narrow return shapes
