great quality for the price 06/23/2018 12:05:59 AM

This item arrived with minor shipping damage (bent adjusting thumb-screw) but Grizzly sent me a new part very quickly and I was able to make due with a regular hex screw until it arrived.
The overall quality is better than I expected and I'm very happy with it. Rated capacity is 20 gauge mild steel but I did roll a 6" piece of 16 gauge successfully, just had to go very slow.
It takes a little time to get used to the adjusting knobs. I used a sharpie to make marks on the radius adjusting knobs so that I could keep count of turns and move both sides equally.
It's not the most accurate tool but gets better with some practice and should last a long time. Just keep in mind it's really only meant for small work.
Also great that I can hang it on the wall out if the way when not in use.

Great product 02/18/2018 4:28:26 PM

Fairly small (short) so pull out your tape measure before buying. Plan on buying a slip roller that is a third bigger than your average project until you get to industrial machines. If you are running a 12" roll don't get a 12" slip roll it is too hard on the unit to run at full rated capacity. Quality was excellent, far better than expected. It is the quality I would expect from an American made machine. It is a hobbyist size but will last for years in my small sheet metal production shop. I Wil absolutely buy a larger one from Grizzly when I am ready.

Great product for the cost 02/18/2018 1:57:09 PM

It will definitely roll metal but the roller pin has no gages, only the feeder rollers which makes it difficult to reproduce pieces.

SImple and easy to use 07/14/2017 12:44:43 PM

I bought this for a project and have made use of it with good results. Even though it is rated for thin metals it is possible to roll thicker strips, the trick is making sure the gearing stays engaged while rolling. Keep in mind that using a Slip roll is a very intense arm workout if you are not used to this kind of activity. Fast Shipping and easy to use site are always a nice thing too.

It bends flat steel. 12/24/2015 1:52:41 AM

For the price, this seems like the best value in the market to bend the occasional piece of sheet steel or wire. I've used it a few times (3/16" mild steel round bar, 22 ga mild sheet steel), and the slip roll performed as expected in each case. I haven't attempted 20 ga mild steel, so I can't speak to performance when pushed to the max. That said, if one expects to use a slip roll for much more than 22 gauge, they really need to look at a different class of machine that costs 10-20X more than this unit. I like the fact that I can clamp this into my bench vice rather than permanently mount it on my bench. As an occasional tool, it's very convenient to just pull it out when I need it. There is more lateral play in the front bottom roller than I would expect. This isn't an issue with sheet steel, but the lateral play can make it a little more challenging to use the wire grooves, If the wire starts to twist, the edges of the wire can get sheared slightly by the misaligned rollers. But it's not a major problem, and I don't imagine I'll use the wire grooves very often. While there are no graduations or scale for the rear roller (that sets the bend radius), it's trivial to adjust each side in a similar manner to ensure a uniform cylinder rather than a cone. While this is not a professional grade machine--it's a very well priced, well made unit.
