Hack and weld some legs on an old frame?

Haha I though about that for a millisecond but I have plans for the spare frame I have.  :)

And these frames aren't that cheap.

I made one when I was redoing the gt250 that fits on a regular engine stand. It is way overbuilt, but it was material that I already had around. It does a fantastic job and is very nice to be able to get all the way around the engine. Also, if you can believe it, my garage was actually clean enough and uncluttered enough at one point to have that in there LOL

One word for this engine stand....

SKETCHY. 

Really its actually sorta solid.  ::)  Though I may end up adding some flying buttresses before its over.  LOL

And if need be, I wont be afraid to swap in longer front struts to tip the engine back for easier access to the soft underbelly.

I would worry more about it being top heavy on that work bench.  But a nice little stand otherwise.
