rolling mill - no machining cam shaft

Recommended Posts

I recently completed a McDonald rolling mill and thought I would share my solution to the lower camshaft problem. I didn't have the facilities to turn an offset cam and didn't want to spend the money quoted by my local machinist so this is what I came up with. I simply added a large amount of material to the shafting with a mig welder and hand ground the cam out of it. This required that the saddle for the thrust bar be modified to ride on the shaft on both sides of the cam instead of the cam itself. The following pictures are of the cam shaft and the saddle configuration.11666952_10156671872290541_1316986251_n.jpg12498473_10156671872335541_575192926_n.jpg1421413_10156671872160541_1692687827_n.jpg12833454_10156671872205541_1529937921_n.jpg12782203_10156671872010541_1228754558_n.jpg
