Steve mentioned inline skate wheels for a jig

One  of the kids, in a class I was substituting in, was working on and RC car. As you said, the wheels are softer. I can imagine they would be perfect for any application where they applied pressure to a wooden surface.

Your aluminum top or those now defunct granite tops some nut put on table saws. Must have been a money loozer for someone!! or was it luzer or loocer, looser??

While I think either type of wheel would be a plus, the softer R/C wheel would allow a bit of "fudge factor" in the placement of the magnet. Also, the R/c wheel would be preferable for those situations where one is cutting an irregular edge, such as a rough sawn board or a live edge. The harder wheel would not conform in the least in these instances.

Wheels aside, this is a great idea. Wish I'd have thought of it. I would think the stand alone magnet would also work well for a thin strip jig.

Sure beats clamping a wooden guide to a waffle bottomed table.
