I just bought one from Harbor Freight for $49. I was real skeptacle when I saw the ad in Sundays paper. When I went to look at it the folowing Monday I bought it. I had seen another brand at a tool show, you know the ones that are here today in the parking lot, and gone tomorrow. It was $10 more than the Harbor Freight one that I bought, and it was constructed a whole lot lighter. I know the one from Harbor Freight is Chinese, as was the one from the tool sale, but there is differences in the quality of Chinese goods. If you get the one from Harbor Freight be sure and lube the casters, both the axles and the swivel bearings, makes it a lot easier to roll around when you have an engine on it. I was really suprised at the quality of this stand. I did not use the bolts supplied for holding the arms on that the engine bolts to. I purchased four quality graded bolts and nuts.

Wow. That's really cheap. I'm not looking to take the engine out, but with that price and knowing I will in the future, I might have to look further into that.
