Talking Hi-Tech Roller Stand

In an effort to organize my shop I was sorting through the mounds of stored items and I came across my Hi-Tech Roller Stand that was buried behind an old knee hole dresser, under the double drop leaf table.

The company that made this fine shop aid describes it like this:

"Our Hi-Tech Roller Stand has a turned roller made from the finest hardwood available, mounted in a matching hardwood frame to minimize damage to your workpiece.

The hardwood roller assembly is supported by a tilting, swivel mount with positive locking device, activated by a precision chrome screw with an ergonomically designed high impact plastic handle.

All this combined with variable height adjustment from 27" to 59", more than any other roller stand in it's class.

But we have gone farther than any other tool manufacturer and added non skid feet, rack and pinion fine height adjustment with rapid action release and a positive locking mechanism.

And because we know the discerning craftsman demands close tolerances in his work, we add a precision made steel ball leveling device so you know the set up is correct before you make the first cut on you next piece of quality furniture.

And when you are through creating your masterpiece it folds up for easy out of the way storage.

We know you'll want a Hi-Tech Roller Stand in your shop today."

REVIEWS

Me in Dallas, Texas : After using the Hi-Tech Roller Stand for 20 years I found it to be indispensable to my work and wish I would have bought another one. The price was really low for such and quality roller stand (.25 rolling pin + 1.00 camera tripod bought at garage sale).

My rating ... 5 out of 5 stars ... because you wouldn't let me have another star.

I"m glad I found mine I was afraid I left it in the old shop.

Default I'm guessing Maple for the roller pin

Hi Mike,
I'm guessing Maple for the roller pin. You could make a lot of fine wood pens with sentimental value, from that piece, and give them to members of your family as personal gifts.
Your grandkids might be interested in a "pen stylus'" for their ipads or iphones, (with sentimental value).
Any thoughts on that?
Mark

Hi Mark,

That roller is old and plane and very colorful so it probably would remind them of me.

It is a GOOD idea mark,

Mike

Hi Joe,
Steve does have some good videos but that is one I haven't seen yet, I guess I just overlooked it.
I have some 1 1/2" PVC left from project I did and that would be a good thing to use it for. I could use a frame similar to Steve's ..... might just work

Thanks for the link,
Mike

They retired me early because the doctor said I shouldn't use power tools but I don't think she would have a problem with that, I should ask at me next appointment.
