Editor's Notes & Price Research

Written by

Get the support you need in the shop or on the job site with our 3-Row Ball Bearing Stand and accessory Outfeed Table Kit! The heavy-duty stand comes standard with three rows of eight 5/8'' diameter steel balls that let you move your stock in any direction. It's like having another set of hands to provide support without added friction as you make long rips or cross cuts. For even more support, use the included Outfeed Table Kit, which lets you attach a solid panel up to 24'' x 48'' in size—ideal for large parts that might otherwise tip. Whichever top you use, both the base and top sections fold flat for compact storage and transport, and the easily height adjustable feet will provide perfect alignment and support for any outfeed application on any tool in your shop.

i agree with both of you... the HF will work for 95% of users. but those 95% need to realize that the remaining 5% actually do need the extra features.

no problem with either tool if it matches the needs of the user. the issue arises when the users of one start dismissing the other as not useful. i have a lot of high end tools, and low end tools, depending on my use frequency and intensity.

I ordered one! My dad (in his 60's likes constructing his own out of plywood and 2x4's... and they just.. take up a lot of space, they're heavy, not quite "mobile", etc.). I signed up to their newsletter (throwaway email) to get free shipping. Seems like a good deal!

This is great to have, but can't pull the trigger even at this price. Wish Harbor Freight made this version as well as their single roller.

What's a "pull the trigger" price? This seems like a great deal considering it comes with the attachment and everything. And probably a little better built than whatever Harbor has to offer.

HF has stand with single roler stand for $16.99 before coupon. These things are simple steel tubes, so I'm guessing Rockler is adding some excessive margin to this (check Alibaba for an idea of what these are costing Rockler).

I would consider buying it if it were under $50 for the triple roller and out feed table attachment.

I also prefer the fixed direction rollers vs. the ball type. That way to board goes only in 1 direction.

That HF stand [harborfreight.com] is a toy compared to this outfeed stand from Rockler. I'd much rather have 1 Rockler stand than 10 HF stands.

I own a HF stand. I don't understand what this does to warrant the price increase. It has ball bearings and can slide stuff multiple directions I get it, but my table saw only cuts in one direction so I get no benefit of having multi direction ball bearings on top of a stand.

They're both adjustable. They both roll. All things being equal (esp price) and I'd rather the Rockler one, but it's 7-9 times the price for the same function as far as my use case goes.

Those with different use cases where this does help enough to warrant the cost: What are you using it for?

  • The Rockler has 3 rows for support versus 1 row on the HF
  • The Rockler has multi-directional balls versus a single roller on the HF
  • The Rockler is 4x the strength of the HF
  • The Rockler has ​eccentric feet for leveling, the HF can wobble or be crooked
  • The Rockler converts to a work table or outfeed table, the HF doesn't

And quality wise, there is simply no comparison.

I hate rollers on an outfeed. I want my outfeed to be the same friction as my infeed and my saw feed and whatever else is feeding around my table saw. Just give me a flat platform any day.

The problem with these is that if when the wood comes off the saw and gets to where most of its weight is on the roller derby, if this rolly polly is not perfectly level, the wood will start to slide to one side or another. It can get really hard to control. Like dangerous.

Typical Rockler. Yeah, it's very nice quality and yeah, it's also way overpriced. It seems crazy to me that even on Slickdeals Front Page this is so expensive.

The problem with "...But my table saw only cuts in one direction..." is that it's never perfectly aligned with the roller stand and the roller can gradually cause parts to drift to one side or the other instead of staying tight to the fence. My solution was a Rigid Flip Top portable work support. Reasonably priced and doesn't try to guide the work piece in any particular direction

Yes, I agree. The Rockler has nicer features (never said it didn't, actually pointed some out). My point was even at this discount, it's overpriced for what you get.

If you feel it's worth it to you at this price, great. I just don't value this that much and see downsides in using these type of rollers and doubt i will need a 400+ pound capacity compared to HFs 130+ pound rating for an out feed table (especially for this small of a footprint).

To each his own.
