    Not really Adey, it's a parts bender rather than a scroll former.

    Go on then, copy me in as well please.:hug:

    Not sure if this is the sort of thing Wozzaah could add to his library so we could download direct - he may want to keep it striclty to books though

    There are a few files that aren't ebooks on there already so I'm happy to add anything anyone thinks may be useful to other members to 'the library'.
    If anyone has anything they think may be of interest, drop me a PM letting me know what it is ;).
    Thanks.

    I bought this one about 10 years ago and it has made at least 1000 scrolls.
    Hope the pics help.

    I have their master strip worker, a fantastic piece of kit, everything I have made has been done using that. I flogged the scroll maker and twister as I dont do that kind of work, but they are great bits of kit. I have been using mine for about 8 yearswith not a single problem. Ok I did wear some of the knurling off the drive wheel by rolling 10mm stainless bar, a lot of it. Take time to mount it properly on the bench so their is room for long pieces of stripto go in and out. It says on the packaging 'A business in a box' for once the maker is not bulling us.

    I have just bought their big XL5 Power bender, even more aweseome, does edge bending as well. When I have a bit of spare time I will put up a post about it with a link to their site etc.

    Thanks for that, i forgot who made them as i bought them a long time back, and i needed a punch for the other machine i bought from them.
    It's a handy wee tool for cutting the flt bar to length before scrolling it.

    A 'handy wee tool'
    A bit of understatement there!
    " Shearing : 25mm x 5mm (flat strip), 6mm (square bar), 6mm (round bar/wire)
    Punching : 5mm diameter hole in up to 5mm thick material, 3mm diameter hole in up to 3mm thick material, 6mm diameter hole in up to 3mm thick
    Riveting - 5mm diameter rivet
    Bending - 25mm x 5mm (flat strip), 10mm round, 10mm square bar. Angle of Bend Achievable - 180° to 60°
    Rolling - 25mm x 6mm or 30mm x 5mm flat strip, 10mm round, 10mm square bar

    Handy wee tool. Jolly handy more like.

    I will put up a post re the biger version when I get time.

    Can't say i use it for all that it's capable of, but here's something i use regurarly, a hand bender. I have three hand tools ( scroller, the shearer tool and a bender) that have been made to fit a kind of quick fit mounting on the end of my welding table to save space.
