Those mods are about what needs to be done - you but might consider a ride to Albany for the $60 HF 1000# heavy duty version
instead of spending time on cobbling up the 750# light duty stand.
I was actually going to head out there yesterday to get it, but ended up having to do somthing else. I took invintory of what I have for steel, and I don't have enough stuff to do it, so it would be a trip out to Albany anyway for more steel as our local supplier closed up.. Might as well get the stand. Steel would probably cost $20-30, casters are probably $10 each from TSC
