I finally had enough of the free standing floor stock rest for my cut-off saw. So I decided on making a custom rest that attached to my tool box light post. I think it turned out pretty well, I like it.

It tucks in well above the extenda-reel so will clean up that area and always be ready to use without being in the way when its not needed. I like it.
If thats a 1989 bandsaw you've done a remarkable job restoring it and looks like many nice touches upgrading it too. Have you ever done an piece on it. I'd really like to see that! - jv

Great Idea, work great for small shops where ever inch counts and the fact the you do not have to find a place to store it when not in use. Or try to dig it out when you need it.

Randy,
Nice job! looks like plenty of thought went into your design. One suggestion for anyone wanting to copy this or any other roller design is to extend the roller support ears past the hight of the roller. This would prevent stock from rolling off.

Roller/stands are so handy to have in one man shop. I made these some time last year and have used them on the mill, iron worker and to support long pieces that extend past the welding table.

My hats off to you on your ability to work with aluminum. I really like what you did, very nice work sir.

Yeah, actually I did think about doing that and decided against it. My reason is my roller is only 6 inches and I felt that if I ever had stock that I wanted to over hang it I couldn't.

You mean for the need of a stock rest? I do have separate floor standing stock rests. If the move is permanent, I will have to rethink my plan. I am however, really liking my layout right now.

Nice aluminum work and design Randy, it looks great. I agree with your thoughts on being able to use the stand for wider work, we just never know.:)

@RandyM your shop is disgustingly clean. I'd be afraid to do any work in there for fear of getting something dirty.
You'd probably be afraid to enter my shop at all.

Yeah, I have that effect on people. Trust me, it does get dirty. The key is to pick and clean up after every project, sometimes in the middle if it is a large ongoing one. The good news for you is, you to can have an organized shop, ya just have to want to.
