Rollers on raft trailer

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to share this as maybe others might be interested.

I found a carpentry board roller made to use with a table saw at Sears. It is designed to support the end of a board while cutting. It has a very sturdy roller and was bolted to a stand.

I removed the stand by unbolting the one screw and then drilled out the bracket and mounted it on the end of my raft trailer rail. I think this will make loading much easier and it only cost about $50 and a half hour.

Here is a link to the roller stand from sears:

Here is an after the instal pic on my trailer:

Looks like a great plan. FWIW, you can buy similar (identical?) rollers from Northern Tool for $20. Northern Industrial Roller and Bracket Set | Roller Supports | Northern Tool + Equipment
