Outfeed Roller Storage

I use an outfeed roller a lot in my woodworking shop. But I don’t need one set up all the time. Even though it folds flat, I keep it out of the way by storing it overhead. The ceiling joists are a perfect place to hang it.

To do this, I hung three bicycle hooks from the joists in my garage shop. When I need to store the stand, I just hook the legs onto two of the hooks (lower left drawing). Then I swing up the other end and slip it into a third hook (lower right drawing) to secure the stand to the ceiling.

Now I don’t need to use valuable floor space to store my roller stand. But it’s at the ready when<br/>I need it.
