I wanted a new engine stand for my upcoming big block build. Something real sturdy.
There's a really nice 2,000 pound rated one with folding front legs on the market. Harbor Freight has it at $101.00 if you have a 25% coupon and Jegs has it at $109.00 with free shipping.
I saw the one at HF and passed. Three wheels are welded on, all were crooked. The rest of the welds didn't look too good.
The one from Jegs had all bolt on wheels, I ordered it.
It came today and I assembled it at my machinist's shop. He happens to have the HF version. Side by side, the HF stand looks like crap.
My only complaint: It only comes with washers for one end of the bolts. I like a washer under the head and nut. A stop at Home Depot will fix that.
If you need a stand, get the Jegs.
How may I help you?
