|Manufacturer Part:||EMT ID:|
- 51" Forming Width
- 16-Gauge Mild Steel Capacity
- 3 Wire Grooves
The SR-5016E powered slip roll from Baileigh Industrial is the perfect roller for any HVAC shop or general fabrication shop when sheet metal forming 16 gauge or less mild steel is required. This slip roll has three forming rolls with a width of 51" and features two driven rolls for more power. Powered by 1hp 110V motor assures that this well thought out machine can operate anywhere. Solid steel uprights on both the left and right sides of the SR-5016E slip roll make this one rigid machine, an important feature when bending at maximum capacity (16GA mild steel sheet metal). A heavy duty fully formed base is also included. Operation of the SR-5016E slip roller couldn’t be easier; it features a foot pedal for both left and right rolling applications and has three integrated emergency stops to help maintain a safe workplace. As with all Baileigh Industrial products the SR-5016E slip roll is built using only the highest grade components for years of long life.

Just received machine, and have only been able to run a few test pieces through it, so these are my initial observations. First, this machine is made in China, and is definitely not a production shop machine. It had many loose fasteners, with parts on the verge of falling off, so obviously there was never any P.D.I. performed prior to shipping. The bending roller scales on each end of the machine are out of alignment by almost 1/2", and will require complete removal, new holes drilled, tapped etc. to correct. The pinch roller adjusting screws, are nothing more than sharpened bolts that form a wedge to lift the bottom roller up. If they are backed out too far, the bottom roller just drops off the end of the taper, and has to be lifted by hand to get the sharpened bolt back under it. There is no doubt in my mind that this will fail in short order if not used carefully, and is very difficult to get pinch rollers tight enough to hold material snugly- if following the Baileigh video demo suggestions, and adjusting knobs are cheap plastic that have lots of sharp edges that just add to the difficulty of getting the pinch rollers tight. The machine does function, and does make tubes, and admittedly, beats the hell out of cranking by hand. This machine can be purchased without the "Baileigh" emblem stuck on the front for about 1/2 the price from another high volume importer that I won't name here. The "quick release" top roller mechanism is poorly machined, and requires a wrestling match to get material off, and the roller back into the work position. So, as with many other "made in china' machines, you "just have to fix a few things" to make it a more useable machine. Bottom line- if you want a low cost machine, no point buying it from a name brand company (unless your sure they actually made it) and paying an additional tier of mark-up on a "made in china" machine. Make an effort to actually inspect the machine you want before you buy it. I'll update later.
