I've been to all the hardware stores and flooring stores in the area,
but nobody sells a simple J-roller. I will be applying 1/8" red oak
door skin on the sides of exposed kitchen cabinets.
Can I apply enough pressure without the J-roller, or should I order one
on-line and just wait the extra few days?
Mr. Fixit, (IF that's your real name)... I saw J-rollers today at Home
Despot. Not in the tool dept though...near the edge-banding tape.
btw... the triple-headed laminate rollers, do not apply as much pressure
as the single ones (too much distribution over area)

Go to Google Images, look for pics, make a wooden roller on a
handle shaped like that in under an hour. What's the problem?
I made a couple small kitchen countertops, about 2'x2', without
one using a piece of tubafore and a rubber mallet. If you make
sure you use solvent-based contact cement and let it flash
properly, I doubt you'll have a problem.

Every BORG and hardware store in Central CT has them.
Skip the flooring area and head towards the plastic laminate. The J
rollers are often right next to the contact cements comarketed near
the sheet laminate rack.
