How To Make A Concrete Roller
Here's a simple way to avoid the need for bearings on a do-it-yourself concrete lawn roller.
  Mark Eilers, Tower Hill, Ill., stood a plastic barrel on end and placed a plastic pipe on end inside at dead center. Then he filled the barrel with concrete. Once the concrete set, he cut off the other end of the barrel and slipped a steel rod through the plastic pipe. The ends of the rod weld solidly to a wishbone hitch. The steel rod turns freely inside the plastic pipe with little friction. Best of all, there are no bearings to worry about.
