    While in Home depot the other day I noticed a roller for wallpaper " I think that's what it was for"

    and was wondering has anyone ever made a homemade striper roller?

    these had sealed berrings and 2 of them togather would make a good striper roller.... I think ?

    am I being a redneck here ?

    Similar things have been done before. I saw one on here made out of conveyor rollers. Try doing a search. :waving:

    you can also use ovc pipe filled with concrete with a pipe in the middle(so the striper has some give if you hit a rock, and to allow it to roll). thats what i did and it works great.

    Just my thoughts here if you can afford a high dollar mower why not buy the factory striper that is made to bolt onto the mower ????? YES REDNECK IS RIGHT
