    Looking forward to the test results
    Gee, I thought he was going to put a roll of Scotch Tape on it and use it on his desk.

    I am really anxious to see how this worked Darren. You seem to manage to come up with something different all of the time.

    Enjoy,

    Well, tried it out today, biggest problem is getting the roller to roll, so may have to give Rob's suggestion a try, turn it to fit a piece of a slip on paint roller, or put a motor on it.
    I manually spun the roller as I applied it to the strips, and it used up glue quickly from the reservoir and spread out nicely, but I need to turn the edges of the roller a little shy of the sides as it gathers up there and runs down the sides of the base. After about 10 of the 16 strips I did finally just lay a bead of glue down the strip and run it across the roller, that worked well and caught a lot of the mess.

    Maybe instead of depending on the knobs, drill a hole through the sides and center of the roller and use a little metal rod as an axle? Maybe that would let it spin easier?

    I thought a about that, I've got a few of the roller blade bearings left too that could also lessen the drag. The well could also use a rubber base, couldn't push down too much without it moving on me.

    Glue and Roller Blade Bearings??? Isn't that sort of like cactus soup and gilla (How in the heck do you spell that?) monsters---I don't think they go together!

    Looks very handy Darren. I could have used something like that when I was making cutting boards with lots of thin strips.

    I agree with Jim on the bearing idea. I think you'd run into problems. I'd be inclined to go with plastic (UHMD or Delrin) bushings and axles instead. They will clean up much easier. Also, all of the glue rollers I've used have a rubber roller surface. I wonder if coating the roller with Plasti Dip would make it a bit more "grippy" and easier to roll with the workpiece?

    Good point, they are sealed bearings and I'd clean them after, but do have a block of delrin laying around too, much easier to clean up.

    I may try one of the one's that Ted linked to as well.
