HF sells two different designs of roller stands, with a couple of variations. The higher priced one, still only ~$13, has a red locking lever, square extension post and chrome roller and and appears to be much sturdier than the lower priced one which utilizes a large plastic jamb nut as a locking mechanism, has a round extension post and a red plastic covered roller. If you are going to buy one from HF, go with the more expensive one. The cheaper stand is a piece of junk. So far, the higher priced one appears to be ok.
