roll up machine


i have a project that requires breaking down a 2' wide x 250' roll of delicate fiber paper 1/16" thick in 4.8" wide x 25' long rolls. i have separated into two jobs. 1) cutting the 2' wide into 4.8" wide strips- which we will use a band saw with knifes edge. this part is not a problem. 2) this is where i run into problems. we need to break the 250' roll into 25' long rolls. at the moment we roll out 25' on table and re-roll then cut into 5ths with band saw to achieve 4.8"x25' rolls.

my question is... do you have a better idea? or is there a machine that will roll the 25' easier than doing it by hand?

what do you think?

Is there a machine that does what you want..... possibly.

The problem with a one off job like this is there is no room or profit to be buying expensive equipment.
