Has anyone used one of these? They look pretty neat, but I don’t know if they would work as good as a set of roller balls on a board in my Workmate.

I have one and am pleased with it. I mainly use it for supporting longer sheets that extend off the bench while knocking down them down to more manageable pieces with a circular saw or my jig saw. I have used it for infeed/outfeed support and it works just fine. I’m guessing the ball-type would allow the material to move more freely but I haven’t had an issue in my limited experience.

Yep, got two of them. I use them for left side support and for outfeed support. The slanted top allows for longer wood to flex downward on outfeed but catch and raise the piece on the stand (if that makes sense). You can adjust the top to stay flat as well.

I have one exactly like that made by B & D that is 20-30 years old…......and I like it a lot.

Use it the same way Jason and Hoakie use theirs.

I like it better than a 4-roller stand I have.

Hit it with a little wax before you use it and stock slides much better.

I have a couple of those. They were off the market for awhile.

The rubber feet fall off and fall apart. Other than that, they are
useful for quick work supports and for saw outfeeds.

I like them better than roller stands too.

Have your say...
