Slat mill designs

Hi, i'm going to start building / buying stuff for / my own slat mill in several days, and i've been trying to find some plans for Robert Lemm's slat mills, so i may steal things.

Does anyone on the board have them and wish to share ?

I personally prefer the wooden slat mill to any other method of conditioning. Of course with that said, nothing beats long walks with your dog to develop dog/handler relationships along with conditioning. Hours of walking and minutes of treadmill work very well for me and I hope to be at it in a few weeks, EXCITED! I need it, my dogs will love it and benefit from it, so I hope a good time for all. Been busy, and have enjoyed the new and finally the old contact I finally made. Looking forward to losing weight while conditioning what looks to be a 36lb and a 48lb dog. Also looking forward to the learning experiences that will surely arise and getting experienced input from all of you. Probably a few weeks to a month away, but will keep you posted and will post some pics.

Thanks, welder, i will take you up on that offer

I built my own bookcase when i was 16 and i've done a few other things since, don't know if that will mean much for this project. Never welded before, but i will do so (stick) on scrap metal until i'm comfortable with it, and that is when i'll start to actually buy things. In case i'm horrible at it, i'll leave it to a welder to put the frame together.

The slat mill will be for a malinois, not an apbt, so i need to make it a little longer, which may mean getting bigger wheels, and the drag may increase significantly because of the length ?

The dimensions i came up with atm are: 160x40 cm for the actual running surface, that is 5'3" x 15 3/4", hope this is correct, 40x8x1 cm for the slats (oak or beech), that is 15 3/4" x 3 3/20" x 3/8". Fire hose for the belt, aluminum big wheels, will have to speak with a turner for them, maybe even for the rollers.

get your fire hose off ebay. and use the steel rollers. 1 15/16'' dia. get on dogtrotters site he has a way to measure your dog to determine the axle center line. I'd go with the 2''-2 1/4'' slats. oak is the way to go. but this is your first time. so you may want to go with pine. ez on the wallet. where the heck are you? main thing is keep your belts square!!!! go with the 8''aluminun main wheels. split rim and 5/8'' bearing.

Will do on all points, including a trial run, thanks again
If you would, i have 2 more dumb questions: is 1/8 spacing for the slats ok, and how do i tie the ends of the belts, one bolt to catch both of them ?

I live in Romania.

na coach not you this time hahaha.



GAP; yea 1/8''is fine no more than that tho. you can use 1/16'' but you have to rout both top and bottom of the slats. you should do that regardless.

I use 3 screws per side. 1 in the middle at the seam of the belt and 1 on each side of the seam. or you can use 4 per side, 2 on each side of the seam. aint no dum questions, just dum answers lmao.....
