Sawhorse-Mounted Outfeed Roller
Having neither the room in my shop nor the patience for setting up a traditional roller stand, I came up with a light little attachment that clamps to the rail of my James Krenov-inspired sawhorse. It’s basically a scrap piece of plywood edged with two hardwood strips with a roller mounted between them. Dowels plugged into the rail of the horse provide registration for the roller stand’s height. Different pairs of holes in the plywood put the roller attachment at the right height for different machines. I don’t glue the dowels into the sawhorse because the holes in the horse act as a drilling jig when I want to do the initial indexing for another machine.
