Odd hardware request

#1
I am looking for something that will do the same thing a scroll wheel does on a mouse. But I just want a roller type thing to scroll down webpages (well im going to use it for when i read long PDF files) so i can just sit back and use the scroll wheel to slowly scroll down. I am at the point where i am ready to buy a mouse just to take it apart and take the scroll wheel out. But before i do that does anyone know of anything that will do this without me destroying a mouse? Im sure this is a long shot but hopefully someone has seen one somewhere.

I'm currently using a logitech cordless keyboard, and this has a small wheel on the left hand side. This works just like the mouse wheel.

Is that the sort of thing you were thinking of, or a seperate device just to scroll?

just a seperate device to scroll. i use a laptop all the time for work. I am not really in my office much because i travel to comanies. So i just need something USB that will let me scroll, i just get tired of keeping my hand on the mouse to scroll. If worse comes to worse im going to buy a mouse to take it apart :)

hmm i think i found something

"PowerMate is the fastest way to scroll through long text documents, web pages and spreadsheets. With a flick of the wrist, you get to the bottom of the story in record time."

now the question is, does any other compnay make one cheaper :)
That does seem interesting, I'd be interested to see how you like it.

There site doesn't say anything about it being out of stock or backordered, I say you give them crap - try to get a discount :D

Just to be radical...

Why not install voice recognition software and say "scroll or page down" when you want new page?

There are systems for impaired people.
