Tool News - General International Flexible Expandable Roller Stand

RATE THIS:

General International's new model 50-166 adjustable height expandable roller system is ideal for support of large, awkward or cumbersome stock and for in-feed or out-feed assist applications. It's ideal for use in wood shop applications with sheet goods on table saws or for longer or wider stock with planers or drum sanders. It features four lockable 4-inch swivel casters and adjustable height legs from 23 to 36-inches, with large-grip locking knobs for easy levelling on uneven surfaces.


The model 50-166 roller stand can expand to a maximum length of 50 inches and can be compacted to a minimum length of 14-3/4 inches for easy storage. With a maximum rated load capacity of 100 lbs the 50-166 features nine heavy-duty 1-1/2 inch diameter by 13-3/4 inch wide nickel plated rollers, and multiple roller stands can be linked together, conveyor style, for longer feeding or material handling requirements. The 50-166 M1 is currently retailing for $169.99 and can be ordered from most General/General International retail distributors. More information is available here.
