Yoke is attached by a single 1/4"-20 screw.
(Lower yoke removed for clarity)
Rotating the cam counter clockwise raises the yoke.
The same direction as the foot adjuster.
Convenient and easy to remember.
Cross pin is 3/8" diameter, cam gives about 5/16" travel.
Plenty of room to swap lower anvils.

Inner shaft is 1.250 diameter., main shaft is 1.750 diameter.

Handles are 3/8" dia, about 4" long. Bent to suit.
I would use 4 handles next time.Or connect the ends of the handles together, with a large ring.

Shaft is 1 3/4" OD Hard Chrome shaft. Top of shaft is bored 1.255" ID.
Frame is 2 5/8 DOM,bored to 1.755" ID 3/16" split pins riding in 3/16"
wide slots stop any rotation.Shafts will slide up and down,without any wobble.

Hard Chrome is definitely not necessary, but the price was right.

Upper and lower columns. A pair of 3/16" key ways,
and matching split pins, prevent any rotation.

I used split pins, because they don't rely on an accurate press fit.

Upper and lower column, with yoke. Exploded view.

Large shaft is 1 3/4" ,small diameter is 1 1/4". I used hard chrome shaft because
it was free. Precision ground shaft or mild steel would be fine. 3/16" wide slots,
in each piece,accept a 3/16" split pin to stop rotation. A 3/8" dowel pressed through the smaller shaft, accommodates the quick release cam. A 1/4-20 thread in the upper end allows the lower yoke to be attached. The orientation of the lower wheel can be changed by loosening the screw, rotating the yoke to the desired position and tightening the screw.

Verticals are 1/4" thick. Horizontal is 1"x2"x3 1/4" A pair of 10-24 flathead screws
hold each of the vertical plates in place. Counterbored 1/4"-20 cap screw in the
middle attaches the yoke to the column.

The mild steel axles are 1/2" dia at ends, 3/4" dia in center. Bearing diameters
need to be concentric. At assembly,the axles are captured between the bearings.
The upper axles are slightly longer,with a #7 hole near each end for the screws,
to attach to the upper yoke.

Rough machined on left, bearing diameters finished on right. 3" finished OD
must be concentric with bearings. Bearings are 6202,same used in upper wheel.
Easy to get and not expensive. I got double sealed bearings,shielded bearings
would turn easier.

Each anvil wheel gets it's own axle.
Axles are captured between the press fit bearings.
That way the axles don't fall on the floor when you are changing wheels. Lower wheels 3" dia x 3" wide.

Each lower roller gets stamped on both ends
with a number which indicates the radius.

The extra small hole is to drive the piece when
turning the radius between centers.

The flat anvil has 2 different corner rads, for tipping flanges.
The od on all lower anvils is the same.

Left is 6" OD,3" wide polished steel.
Right is a 6" OD Urethane caster, 2" wide.

The upper wheel wants to be at least double
the OD of the lower wheels.
