Would you like me to weld one up for you? I can always use some more money for racing? Doesn't have to be nice does it?

I can't remember buying an engine stand made in the USA. Does anyone actually make one?

I have an old Ex-Cell that I bought from Sams Club back in like.... 1995-ish. Made in the USA, high quality, best one I have.

I have 3 nice ones, one borrowed from my chassis guy, and then like 3 china junk. They gotta go.

Ha! I hear you. My best engine stand came from Sears, I think, about 20 years ago. I have a cheap POS that probably came from China with wheels that are so small I am afraid to move it with an engine on it!

My engine builder used to build his own engine dolleys, he couldn't stand the junk that is out there.

A couple would be the way to go cost wise. It would be easy and the quality would be much better than anything you can buy off the shelf. When you swing by for the spacers just bring your favorite one by and let me get some dims off it. The most expensive item will be the casters. You do the paint I don't paint ! LOL~ Jason

I believe CV Products one is American made. Don't know what it costs but here is the part number. CVT-50 Engine stand & CVT-51 Drip Tray.

This is what you need: http://www.axeequipment.com/enginestandsnewfor.htm

I'm pretty sure this is where CV's stands come from and they are the shit, no doubt.
