    Roller Stand

    I've always wanted a place to keep tools and parts close by when working on a project.

    When my office chair died, I took the roller Base and a 1½" piece of PVC fit perfectly in the center hole, I had an old cafeteria tray, and a couple scraps of ¾" plywood, and this is what I came up with. I think it will be handy.

    Great idea, Dan. I'd like to put a base like that on my dust scoop that's behind the lathe.

    That would work great Vaughn, The best part is having the 5 wheels instead of 4 makes it very stable against tipping over.
