today i decided to make a home made engine stand for lawn mower engines, its nothing fancy by all means, just thought id share what i made, now in the pics the engine is suppose to sit long ways with the 2x4's but i had it turned in the pic because i was looking at something under the engine, but anyways iv done tested every way the engine can sit on there and its actually very stable so no worries of it tipping over Very Happy i do plan to drill counter sunk holes from underneath so i can use the bolts that you use to bolt the engine to the frame so i can bolt the engine to this stand. well heres the pics.

Thanks! it took me maybe 30 mins to do everything and that includes using 2 different saws, i think wheels are pretty cheap tho, and they don't even need to be that big that's just what i had laying around, heck i'm sure you could even use the wheels off an old computer chair if you have one of those laying around.

That's more convenient than what I use. I've got a side of my work bench drilled to hold engines.

hey that works to, but i like this for the simple fact that you can roll it right up next to the mower and pick the engine up and just set it on this. no need for carrying it across the garage or where ever and take the chance on straining your back or anything.
