Hey guys here is another shot of the roller entertainment center. This one shows the bar(on the left) that you can hold on to at first until you don't need it. Also the entertainment center which includes TV, VCR, fan, wireless headphone. You can see my beater Centurion roller bike in the stand just waiting for a rainy day.
This is a cool setup if you have the space in the garage to leave it setup all the time.
Hope this helps enjoy your projects

and trying to figure out how it was constructed. It looks like the rollers frame is attached somehow to the wooden frame (so the rollers don't move within the box). This wooden frame presumably surrounds the rollers with the top plywood screwed into the 2x4s and the feet to the outside. I thought there was a vertical bar but I couldn't tell until this post. Very clever. I like the entertainment center as well.
Are those Weyless rollers?Kerry

We bought ours in 1975 and they get 2-3K miles per year from the two of us. Total maintenance = 1 replacement belt. Not the cheap Weyless parts from Supergo, but the real deal. About $350 in current money!

Yes, they are an older set of Weyless. These seem bullet proof with the steel drums, alloy end caps. Bearings roll forever. The weight of the drums gives a good inertia feel to this set.
