I’ve been in the shop with heavy-duty projects the entire week, working with long boards on both the miter saw and table saw. My roller stand has been uber-handy, but a second one would be even better. Looking around a little, I found this Fliptop roller buy Rockler that has ball bearings on the top.
The only issue I have with the one I’ve got is that if the roller is not perfectly aligned with the incoming board, it will tend to kick the feed out to the reverse of whatever angle it’s off on the receiving end. In short, it can give you a wobble in your cutting line. The ball bearings on the Rockler roller seem like they would track better for tablesaw feeds.
Realistically, $99 is more than I’d ever spend on this — hell, the one I have was a hand-me-down from Chuck’s dad. However, in a perfect world, have the Fliptop roller would be sweet.
