One of the guys over in the forums has a nice little project going on:
"Not all of us can afford [to buy an engine test stand]. I bought cars for less than
that. So I decided to roll my own sorta speak, (pun intended) for a
fraction of the cost."
1. Cheap - quality metal, but I'm not gonna
chrome plate it.
2. Simple - don't need the complexity of making it
adjustable, I won't be tuning an LS1 any time soon.
Materials: Read more over at the forums
I decided to use 2 inch square tube, and 2 inch
angle iron total cost $127.24 (casters and hardware included)... and
they pre cut to length for .50 cents per cut.
