    folding materials roller for swing away band saw

    Here is my folding roller I made today for my band saw
    First I had to use the steady rest I made a couple days ago so I could bore the ends to accept the bearings

    Next was to cut the mounting tabs that would fit in the "E" track slots on the door

    Next was to weld the mount and attach the roller assembly

    Next was to check the alignment in all positions

    Next to see how well it tucked away I will have to eventually get a better holding strap or a shorter bungi cord when it is folded up out of the way
