I had a engine stand that was just taking up space when not being use and a steel plate for welding that had to be put on saw horses to use. Took some old brackets and steel to make a removable welding top for the engine stand,the only thing added to the engine stand was a nut welded to so the bracket gets bolted to that and it makes it tighter . I use a piece of plywood so it can also be an extra work surface too. It comes in handy working on cars because it overhangs .Also made a 90' adapter with a center hole so vertical shaft engines can be worked on

Alc,

This is a great idea. I have been looking for a work surface that could be used as a multi-purpose tool. Easy to put up out of the way, takes up little space.:thumbs:

Thanks, Brian

Forgot to mention that having the top thick enough there's enough of an overhang to use C clamps on all sides . And the magnetic clamps work very good on that too.

That's a great idea Al! I'd give it a try if I could ever get the engine done that's on it LOL!

Well now, since I have the exact same engine stand.... I hope you don't mind me, uh, "borrowing" your idea...

Definitely a cool idea. I have an engine stand too that just sits around. Might have to put it to good use. Great job Alf.

Great work. Been wanting away to make working on verticle shaft motors easier. Now I got it.

Cool idea! I need to bring mine down from the shop attic and make a bracket to hold that K301 for my John Deere so I can start to work on it.
