I didn't think I had the space or funds for a Slabroller but then I saw the North Star 18" Portaroller Slabroller. Has anyone any experience with this Slabroller? Northstar seems to be a good reliable brand and it has a 5 year warranty. If I get it I would store it on a shelf under a work table and place it on top of the table only when I need to use it thereby giving my small studio space a double duty work table. It's also 200 cheaper than the nearest priced full size Slabroller that comes with a dedicated table.
So is this a good slab roller for a non production potter that does smaller items like ornaments, chimes, etc?
Was kind of scared to ask this question as I am sure the pros say buy only the biggest and the best but no space and no money for the full size dedicated table models so be gentle okay?
We've been using one of these for a couple of years. It is fairly rugged, and should be fine for the uses you describe.
