I really like the way you post this stuff man. Jeez.

Someone should take the time to beat you vigourously about the head and shoulders with a live lake trout.

Anyway, good work on the stand, looking forward to pictures, seeing what was built, etc.

Sorry was a couple late nights.............used 3x3 HSS for main runs plated the feet and used 900lb 4x2" castors chemical resistant. with double lock swivels. I still need to make the engine side mounts, which will rest on saddle mounts on top of the main run on each side. will allow the engine to roll 360 degrees end over end for ease of lifters and bottom end work.
