I have heard of rolling in dough, but never a dough roller.....so I got to ask....
I ASSume it's a machine in a bakery?? if so, what is the specs on the silly plastic doing so tight,?? seems to me that a hose and a hose clamp like on my car would do ok.....
Yes, a dough rolling machine for bakery. The tight tolerance is to make sure the teflon stays on the roller and does not slip or move.
The hose clamp might work for your own personal stuff but the Health Board mandates sterile surfaces. The hose clamp would have too many nooks and crannies.

No 5 axis but all three CNC mills have a 4th axis. The two horizontal are indexers ( one is every degree and the other is every thirty seconds [ 1/2 degree] )
The vertical mill has a contouring head. With that 4th axis, we can cut radial grooves or even threads.
Here's a stainless steel roller I made for a pretzel bakery. The grooves are to put salt on the pretzels.

No but it will wrap around the chuck pretty freaking fast.
