direct drive vs gear reduced slab roller is it worth the $$ difference?

Get the wheel! Since a rotator issue, I find it is much easier to stand parallel to the table and pull the wheel toward me, hand over hand- like a rope tug 'o war!
Tip for newbies: Don't stop during the roll thru- you will get a ridge in the slab.

FYI....you may want to check directly w/Bailey about availability. I have no idea where they are now with stocking these, but in Mid-Feb when I ordered mine they said they were in the middle of a production run and that it would take 2-3 weeks for delivery ...and that 2-3 weeks ended up being over 2 months.
roll another one....just like the other one....

my studio is a little larger two large work tables and the slab roller plus some carts, wheel and wedging table, glaze chemical sheaves and ware storage shelves. The slab roller functions
as another work table when not rolling slabs.
