Re: Stainless Fabricator Recommendations for Bent Anchor Roller?

all fine and dandy...however it will be weakened just remember that...stainless is brittle.

ill leave it at that

it will work fine but the po´s roller already bent it somehow

next time it will bend twice or 3 times as easily and possibly be beyond repair

this is one of those cases(like bending back a handlebar on a motorcyle) where you know youre on borrowed time...

and most importantly DO NOT USE HEAT

Re: Stainless Fabricator Recommendations for Bent Anchor Roller?

That one should be easy to bend back. I have done several. they do bend easily, 300 series stainless is actually a soft steel, it can not be heat treated, it does work harden when bent and if worked enough it will become brittle and break but you would have to bend it back a forth a hundred times before it would break. I have straightened a couple of these brackets by cutting a two by four down to fit inside the plates, clamp with a big C clamp and twisting them straight on the boat. your looks like a candidate to try this on.

Re: Stainless Fabricator Recommendations for Bent Anchor Roller?

Scrap it and start over with something that is strong enough in the first place. I made mine out of half inch plate. Stainless of course. Also, use a bolt to put the roller through so you can take it out easily.

Re: Stainless Fabricator Recommendations for Bent Anchor Roller?

Sounds like a great idea but any idea where I can have something like that fabricated at reasonable cost?

Re: Stainless Fabricator Recommendations for Bent Anchor Roller?

any machine shops around? doesnt have to be a marine place...

most good places can work with basic diagram or drawing with measurements

thats how I do it down here

Re: Stainless Fabricator Recommendations for Bent Anchor Roller?

Anyone with welding skills and a drill press can build it. Taking it to a machine shop is likely to be more expensive than it needs to be. If you are able to do the prep work before taking it to a welder, you will save a bunch of money. Same is true if you can do that after welding cleanup.
