Homemade saw feed roller on the cheap


If you’ve got a couple milk crates and some fixed rollers, you can build yourself a saw feed roller for cutting long things on a table saw. It’s not clear if this one is for feeding stock in or tailing off, but either way it looks like it could use a little extra stability, perhaps you could hang a low weight from the top plane to lower the center of gravity of the whole thing.
