That is brilliant.

Just what I’ve been looking for to smooth

the passing of timber over the thicknesser.

G’day, Rob.
That is a neat idea with ball bearing- it should roll very freely.
...........Cheers,Jim

Nice one. I’ve had this issue not only with bowed wood, but with uneven floors in my garage. Thanks for sharing.

very great idea! Will keep that in the memory bank! I also liked how you fitted the wood into the bearing. Did you glue the wedge in?

Hey Guys,
Thanks for the comments, no glue used in this project. Just a bearing trick, emerse bearing in mineral spirits to reduce the grease and they spin easily. learned that trick as a kid making billy carts.
It works because there is no real loading on the bearings so no excessive wear.
