Drill Press Roller Support
I was excited to install and put this support to use as I needed to support a 3' piece of 4x4 mahogany. As soon as I tried to rest the piece of wood on the roller support it dropped an inch or more under the moderate weight. The single screw that holds the adjustable arm in position also pushes the inner part of the arm up. The single point of contact/support to the arm was insufficient to hold the bar at the desired height. Until a decent design is available, I'm going to go back to using floor standing supports for this task.

Good Idea, Bad Construction
Los Angeles, CA
One of the extension arms has a welded 90 degree upturn tube for the roller arm tube. The weld of that turn piece is off plane about 3 degrees which puts the roller arm and its roller off by 3 degrees from the table. Look at a compass and imagine the roller 3 degrees off from the drill table. What's the point of having this device, when it is that out of plumb? Good design, untrained welding, no quality control. It's junk.
work well for what it is
used for 35mm drilling of tall cabinet doors

This product is designed to help with the awkward job of drilling a hole near the end of a long board on the small table of a drill press. The basic idea is good: two extensible arms with roller supports at the end (very similar to the support arms on many miter saw stands). But the unit is so badly constructed that it is useless. All of the adjustments are made by square tubes sliding inside of slightly larger square sockets. The problem is that there too much play in this fit (I measured 0.4 inch difference in nominal one -inch tubes). The result is that the end of the extending arms can move one inch sideways when the set screw is tightened; compounding this, the roller support, which is at right angles to the arm will also move when its set screw is tightened. Ditto with the section that holds the whole arrangement to the drill press column, and added to that, one of the sockets is welded on about 10 degrees from square. So there's about an inch of play in each of the x, y, and z directions, turning the process of set-up into what would be a comedy of errors to watch, but something altogether less pleasant to experience. It's a complete failure. I took it off the drill press and replaced it with an add-on table, which supports a board out to 15 inches and has built in clamps. Maybe I can find a use for some square tubing and a couple of rollers.
Drill Press Roller Support--a great idea
A great idea, well made and functional-perfect for our bench drill press--however I would like something a bit heavier for our 17" floor drill press. I absolutely love having the ability to work on long pieces without having to call my wife out of the garden.
Not a bad product
This product works fine but a little flimsy.
