Double-Duty Roller Tables


Double-Duty Roller Tables

I like getting double duty out of my tools whenever possible. So, when I decided to build outfeed tables for my miter saw and tablesaw, I worked up this dual-use design. The roller tables are simple to switch between machines and take up very little space when I store them against the wall.

I made the roller frames from 2x2s, a 1x4 and eight rollers. I just clamp the rollers to a pair of sawhorses when I use them with my tablesaw. I adjusted the height of my sawhorses so the tops of the rollers sit about 1/8-in. below the top of my tablesaw. When I use them with my miter saw I add a couple of spacer boards to make the rollers level with the miter saw’s table. It cost me about $100 to build the roller frames, not including the sawhorses.

This is a great idea; especially for a table saw off-feed table-  Only, you didn't mention where to get rollers like the one's shown?
