Roller tables are a type of woodworking equipment that are designed to help support and move long pieces of lumber or sheet goods during the woodworking process. They consist of a series of rollers that are mounted on a frame, which can be adjusted to the desired height.
Roller tables are commonly used in conjunction with other woodworking equipment such as table saws, planers, sanders and cross cut saws (to name a few!). They can be used to help support the weight of long pieces of lumber or sheet goods as they are fed through these machines, making it easier for the operator to handle the material and reducing the risk of damage.
Roller tables can also be used as a standalone piece of equipment for tasks such as assembling or sanding large projects. They can be adjusted to the desired height, making it easier for the operator to work on the project without having to bend or stoop.
When choosing roller tables, consider the following factors:
Size: Choose a table that is appropriate for the size of your workshop and the types of projects you will be working on.
Weight capacity: Make sure the table can support the weight of the material you will be working with.
Adjustability: Choose a table that can be adjusted to the desired height for your particular woodworking tasks. The iTECH range in particular can be purchased with variable leg heights.
Durability: Look for tables that are made from high-quality materials and are built to last.
