I been using remote controlled wheels on magnets to hold wood against the table saw fence. A little softer than the skate wheels. Oh and the magnets are from Grizzly. But now they are about half the price of other wood supply places so probably not worth a flip. In some peoples minds? The stand alone magnet on the left is about the best thing for repeatable lengths of cross cut pieces from the table saw in my little mind.
This last summer there was a discusion on another forum of making diamond wheels for the WorkSharp. Bill @Schnewj did a lot of research and cost analysis on making diamond wheels for the WorkSharp Sharpening System. From that discussion I was able to get the sources for the materials thru Bills research. So I set out to make a set of diamond wheels. The idea behind all this was to make some MDF wheels and buy some magnetic sign material 6"discs with PSA backing. Then drill a hole in the discs and peel the cover off and stick them o the MDF wheels. He also found a source in Los Angeles that sold lapidary steel diamond discs for the lapidary trade that were 6" in diameter. So you see where this is going. I will show you how I made the wooden discs and mounted the mag disc them the diamond disc. Herb
I have been using 4" casters on the Big Green Egg tables we have been making. I found one at Lowe's that worked really good. the rolled really smooth, mounted easy and the priced was okay. But as it always seems, when you find a good product they discontinue it and the replacement caster Lowe's put in cost more. Well that sent me to the Internet looking for casters like I was using and I found a site called Caster City. I found they carried the exact same caster I was using so I made a call to them to see what options were available. I use two that just swivel and two that swivel and lock. I was transfered to a great technical person that was most helpful and spent a good bit of time with me on the options. after finding out how many I was using he set me up an account and a discount level so I can go online and order them when I need them and have them shipped to me and even at a cheaper price than I was paying. So if you are looking for casters for any project you are working on may I suggest you check out Caster City. This is the one that I use.
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
