    DIY Engine Test Stand

    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."

    The Goal:
    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:
    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.
