    Another little job finished today, A roller track conveyor to feed an X ray cabinet.

    Frame is made from 40 x 40 stainless box section, fab one end up, using some mitre clamps here to keep it square.

    Then build the other end on top of it, the legs have been fitted with a 10mm thick pad at the bottom, drilled and tapped for adjustable feet.

    Putting it together.

    The frame finished, and fitted with the adjustable feet.

    It needs a tunnel to prevent the operators reaching imto the X ray cabinet, so a form a piece of 2mm sheet and some simple bent brackets,, stainless nutserts used to hold it to the frame, the joints have all just had a dose of pickling paste here

    Some brackets with slots in every direction to tie it to existing studs on the cabinet

    How do the rollers secure into the frame?

    The rollers have spring loaded shafts, the small holes on one side of the rails are for getting them out, just push a welding rod or similar in to push the shaft sideways and pop them out

    Bought locally from a conveyor supplies specialist, they don't sell online. I'll PM you the details if you want them but don't take the price to me as being fixed to everyone though, I do a lot of business with them.

    That's OK, I just thought it'd be handy to have the details in case a future project needed something like them.
