    i need some help with my roller design. from what i have seen (pictures only) it looks as if it is pipe with bearing caps on end with some other miscellaneous parts. my question is this, is the pipe hollow or is filled with sand 4 weight, or none of the above. How much would u say the finished product weighs ? any feed back would be great thanks

    Do a search here under "striping roller" or "striping kit" and you'll see some pics of designs. I think most rollers are heavy by design but that probly is only about 20lbs or so. What makes the roller work is the mounting position. I will be doing lots of things with home made striping kits soon...
