The cheapest outfeed roller EVER!


While working on my workbench, I was at the point where I needed to plane the surfaces of the two slabs.  These are roughly 11 1/2″x4″ slabs.  One is 6′ long, the other 7′ long.  Which is to say, they’re crazy heavy and awkward and cumbersome and pure madness to handle on one’s own.  So, naturally, I decided to try it!  My biggest challenge was going to be handling the boards on the outfeed side.  Before I go there, you’ll need to understand how my planing system is set up.
