    Glue well with roller

    A while back I was watching one of the "how it's made" shows where they were making snow boards by laminating planks. There was a motorized glue well with a roller for applying glue to one side of the plank, which gave me an idea for my high chair arm glue-ups.

    Started with some maple for the roller, turned to 1 7/8", pins are 5/8"

    Next I cut out the well part and two sides. I used a 3/4" forstner to rill out slots for the roller pins in the sides. Everything was sanded smooth before assembly as I plan to wax the pin slots, well, and sides of the roller really well to make the clean up a little easier.

    As shown here, the strips will be rolled across from right to left, my thought is that any excess glue will get pulled under with movement of the roller. Hopefully it will work as planned as there are about 16 strips per arm to apply glue to.

    Very slick. I bet it works right out of the box.

    Thanks guys, hoping a good coat of wax does the trick for the clean-up. I don't plan to put it on the surface of the roller, just the sides, though I guess it couldn't hurt it.

    Just a thought ,thinking of surface tension of glue to roller, perhaps a few grooves in the roller would allow glue to leave roller and form lines easier than a single wide line. My thought would it would help with control of glue thickness. I guess u can experiment with how u have it and make change if neccessary.

    Cool, and if it becomes just a prototype, cap the ears, paint it in a wild style and the kid{s} will have a ball spinning it and spaghetti-O's
    Looking forward to the test results

    Nice.

    Make it easier to clean - line the well with packing tape. The glue won't stick to it.
