Completed Roller Build

Just finished up a new roller gun. This is my third single roller build. Teak and padauk, 50" overall length, small ID band, 9/32" shaft, Ermes double roller. Can't wait to give a test in the pool.

Yes sir. I'm done with epoxy during the winter months where I live, too cold in my work areas. I'll oil finishes in the winter and epoxy when it warms up.

I had it in the pool this morning. That new Ermes trigger is super smooth and overall the gun has very little recoil. Really happy with this one.

In the video, linked below I was shooting from 2 wrap distance, about 18 feet away from the target.

two little question



** using oil with different woods won't cause de-lamination ?

** distance between trigger and handle is little large? I usually keep it within 5 to 6 .5 cm outer distance .

Not that I'm aware of as long as you are using woods that can be oil finished in the first place.

** distance between trigger and handle is little large? I usually keep it within 5 to 6 .5 cm outer distance .
Inside of the handle where your trigger finger would be positioned measures 3.8 cm to furthest part of trigger and 3.175cm to closes part of the trigger. I like to have enough room so that I can fully wrap my gloved hand around the handle while having the trigger just in front of my trigger finger.

Re: Completed Roller Build

Very nice and great job! Try a shaft that has a dog house so that you can tie further up front. This will help flatten the trajectory. I would also think about putting a friction layer on the contact areas of the grip.

Edit: Forget the doghouse comment as I see you have that already in the other picture.
