Northern Industrial Telescopic Universal Stand – 220-Lb. Capacity, 8 7/8in.L to 54 1/3in.L


Just got this put together. It came in a big box that was badly damaged but this thing is built so well it doesn’t have a scratch.

The hardware is heavy, the tubing is heavy and the wheels are heavy.

This will go behind my TS and as a catch for anything coming out the joiner or planer. I have some rather long walnut boards to plane and join so I need something stout to catch the wood after it comes out of the tool. Something I can depend on.

Wheels lock too.

OK Russell, you have just brought up another “discount tool” retailer, Northern Tool and Equipment, that fits into that same niche as HF… and IMO, a good way. I think they keep their product line smaller and better focused than HF, though there seems to be much duplication between the two.

If I am shopping one location, then I will shop the other that same day.

And I will have to check out that topless table on wheels! I am getting tired of using that 5-roller stand as my TS outfeed. Thanks.

It’s stout for sure. I’d put some nice thick washers on the top of the wheel between it and the bar. I think it will swivel better. But mostly I want this table to stay put and I think it’s heavy enough for that. I also plan to buy a couple rollers and clamp them on when I need to use the joiner or planer. The work can roll out that way. It’s got a lot of uses for sure.

It looks like it should be easy to collapse and roll out of the way when needed. That feature would come in quite handy.
