Combo Offer includes the Original 3rd Hand Tripod (#49212) with a FastCap Upper Hand Work Support (#42745) and a 12'' FastCap Outfeed Roller (#45913). Combine all three to make a collapsible roller stand that can be easily broken down for transport and storage. Remove the roller to create a support system for upper cabinets when the base cabinets have not been installed, or you can use the extension support separately to hold upper cabinets in place for when the base cabinets are already in place. Roller can also be attached separately to your workbench or chop saw station. The tripod provides a sturdy base with three 17'' legs that support up to 150 pounds and a vertical column that accepts the Upper Hand Work Support. Products also available separately below.

Once adjusted, the 3rd hand roller stand works adequately. It kind of wobbles and could be a lot stiffer but it does the job. It is taller than other devices of a similar nature which suited my application. The bottom tripod has been difficult to adjust with all the pieces put together so far. Maybe with more practice, I'll get better at it.
The height adjustment is nice but the top feature attachment is faulty. Plastic male-female has too much flex & slop to be useful as a wood feed/take-up. At some point I'll tap the post & fit a good metal bracket to support the roller properly.
