  • How does aircraft spruce roll up aluminum sheets

    Need to move sheets around and was wondering if anyone had seen the technique for rolling up big 12 foot aluminum sheets

    im guessing first step is safety glasses

    And maybe full body armor. Unfortunately, unrolling it is probably not any safer than rolling it, but at least when you unroll it you are successful on the first go, despite the potential, and real, collateral damage.

      A ratcheting strap works pretty well. Two people make it go much easier. Roll it up as much as possible on a bench with the strap loosely around. Slowly ratchet the strap down. From either end each person needs to keep working the most interior edge to keep it from "digging" in. You will be able to get it as small as Aircraft Spruce.
