Portable Roller Stand

Ripping a long board on a small portable table saw can be downright dangerous without extra support. If you don’t have a helper to control the board, clamp a short-nap paint roller to a sawhorse as a temporary roller stand. (Tighten the clamp firmly to prevent slipping.) As you move around your work area, carry the sawhorse along (readjust the roller height if necessary). Now you’ll always have support to safely cut long boards. — William A. Goldbach
