Making an engine stand, inspired by Arzente Motori's FB post.
Also been doing lots of digging online and in the archives here.
What I'd like to build:
Stand that an engine can drop down in and be easily removable, vs a stand that needs a rod fished through while held just right.
Adjustable, large frame/small frame.
Rotates vertically freely, with maybe two locking positions so far (90 and 180 degrees).
Won't be horizontally rotational.
Won't be a kick start stand
My question for you who already have stands:
What do you like and not like about it?
Been using a big rotational vice that worked well until a few months ago, when a finished engine fell to the floor.
Very rough prototype. Ignore the hardware. Going to be 5/16 bolts/star knobs next iteration.
Shitload of this material here. Byproduct of my day job. A bucket a week that goes to waste.
