    Nothing special about mine, I put it together using scrap telspar that I got from the sign shop at work and an old lathe chip pan that I pulled out of the scrap pile here at home. Making stuff from the scrap pile is a common theme around here.
    If it wasn't done the hard way, I didn't do it.

      Is it bolted down to it? I have mine on a HF tool base, but when I try and shove it around the sheet metal sides start folding. I think at the very least a 4 swiveling wheel 'dolly' base like yours is a better idea.

      I wish I could think of a clever way to do it with welding 3/4 gas pipe, I just cut out like 30' of 100 year old gaslight lines!
      A angle iron tab on each corner to bolt to. I stiffened it up surprisingly well.

        I'll put you first in line in my will Actually the one on the right doesn't get much use as I have a different commuter which you can just see on the left in the bottom pic, put nearly 30,000 miles on that one!

            Now that's a pricey stand unless the 80/20 stock was leftover scraps!

              I wouldn't call $50 for 3 metres/10 ft. of that expensive
              Although yeah - it was leftover from when I built the benches in my workshop.

                ...
                $5/ft & at least 20ft in that stand: $100. It would have to be leftovers for me, YMMV.

                  I just picked up a coolant pump from a guy in Mendham, NJ, who has a base that he made for sale.
                  Search Facebook Marketplace for Custom Steel Stand and it should show up. Lots of "Stand" for very little $$.

                    Mine is on an old Husky toolbox, with a couple of 2x4s to dampen vibration and an old sheet pan to catch the mess.
