Product Description

This 2" polyurethane roller has a contoured handle and plated steel frame. This is a far better tool than the plastic rollers found in hardware stores costing nearly twice as much. This tool can be used for a couple different veneer-related jobs.

  1. Since the roller frame is double-ended, you can apply heavy pressure on it and get great results when using it to make air-tight seams on DIY vacuum bags.
  2. It is also an excellent tool to set veneer tape when joining two veneers together.

This tool is not recommended for setting the bond on paper-backed veneer that is adhered with PSA or contact cement. Always use a scraper tool instead for those applications.

Note from Joe
I've heard from a few customers that there are YouTube videos saying that a roller like this should be used with cold press veneer glues (like our X-Press and Ultra-CAT adhesives) to press down the veneer onto the substrate. That is nonsense. Rolling over a veneer like this is a waste of time and there is nothing to be gained from doing that. Apply the glue correctly, set the veneer on top, and get it in the vacuum bag!

Product Reviews

  1. Great Roller

    Review by Andrew Timko

    Excellent tool and the value for the money is absolutely there. There is a lot of junk for a few bucks less that you can find out there, but I trust Veneer Supplies to always deliver a quality product and I am never let down. I highly recommend it.

  2. For Pressing Veneer Tape

    Review by Rick Funcik

    Use it for pressing wet veneer tape. Does a GREAT job. Much better than rubbing with a thick sock, with a brass brush, better than anything I've tried. Quickest and most secure method!

  3. Great for Smoothing Copper Veneer

    Review by Amanda Teicher

    This roller irons out bumps in copper veneer easily. It's easy to use, especially considering I tried a two-handed roller from a local woodworking shop, and I get much batter control with this little roller. Comfortable grip too. I'm using the wood version, and I like it.

    [Tip from Joe: Place vinyl sheeting over the copper to prevent the roller from damaging the copper sheet.]

  4. Review from Absecon, NJ

    Review by Tony Eldis

    I recently placed an order with
    The web site was user friendly and it was easy to find what I was looking for. Customer service was excellent, something that is missing from so many online sites. My order was filled quickly and I received it sooner than I thought. I will be ordering all my veneering supplies from Joe.

  5. Review from Fraser, MI

    Review by Clifford Gagnon

    Purchased for automotive instrument panel windshield seal wet out. These roller work great. Appreciate the fast shipping.

  6. Stop using the cans in the pantry

    Review by Josef B. Lewandowski

    I always figured I had other things I could use to do the job. The real thing made my projects go so much easier. A definite must for the beginner and a great tool to continue to hold in the arsenal.

  7. Just Do It

    Review by Carmen White

    You'll need this for applying veneer tape and building vacuum bags. Ordered mine and it arrived the next day. No complaints here.

  8. Worked Perfectly

    Review by Carrol Feinman

    A great product. Worked perfectly and cleaned up easily after making our first bag that was 2 foot by 4 foot. Great!

  9. A Well Made Tool

    Review by Robert Hanon

    The seamer is built very well. The roller and handle are some kind of hardwood and the pin is fastened nicely which makes it roll really smoooth. Even with all of my weight on it didnt flex at all and the vacume bags came out great.

  10. The Seams Came Out Flawlessly

    Review by Martin Hawthorne

    I got this tool last week to build 3 vacuum bags with the vinyl I got from Joe. This is definitely a heavy duty roller. It worked just like he said it would and the seams came out flawlessly. The bags... they are super. I veneered a medium size panel last evening and it came out perfect. Super job Joe!
