Default Hold-down rollers - don't laugh again !

After the clamped on wallpaper roller (that actually worked well) and looking at some expensive ones that require a slotted plate ontop of my fence which I don't have, I made this simple and low cost roller frame that clamps to my fence and should work very well as a hold down for my interior door work - looking forward to trying it out on my projects !!

Great work and great ideas gentlemen! Actually gave me an idea for something similar for another purpose.
Nice thing about this place is watching all the creative ideas that come and go.

Good lord your inventiveness is amazing.
But I don't think this has the same elegance.
