Kim -

I did visit your website / blog and was very impressed As for Images, they have to be under 500 pixels wide...or they should come up as a download link...I'll test it now as there was another frequent user that had trouble with images?

Edited - I added an image that was larger then 500 pixels and this is what should happen? I'll post some easy instructions that might help out with images...Thanks

I am assuming you are editing the image first and then uploading it at the specs you mentioned. Unfortunately I need to get a hold of Photoshop so I can adjust images to size. My current software is limited and when I shoot the work, I always need high res images for publication purposes.

If you can edit it within the web site, I might be able to add some images. I need to get back in the studio, I lost a lot of time researching for parts, etc. Maybe I will try a different software at some point.

Thanks Again,
Kim

Hey Guys- thought I'd put in my 2 cents- I picked up a set of triple bead rolls about a year ago. They came with an old Niagra Crimp-bead machine I bought. unfortunately, they don't fit any of my machines. They do however fit that cheap harbor freight machine. I know, I know, it's not a REAL rotary machine, but I picked it up to mount in the back of a box truck for emergencies. Anyway, If you're interested, i could send a bunch of pics to you w/measurements. Maybe if you know someone with a lathe that owes you a favor...

I've been working with sheet metal without any formal training for years and years. I would like to learn more about wiring rolls and how to inbed a round wire into the hem of sheet metal to add strength like they did in the old days to strengthen chandelier arms and other long, thin, applications. Is that what a wiring roller does ? does anyone have any drawings about that or can recommend any books ? thanks Teeker
