Thank you guys for all the compliments!!! I thought every bike entered was a winner for sure!!! Great job to everyone. The stand was patterned from one that my Grandfather used long ago. The one he had was made out of iron. I described how it was made in an earlier thread. In addition to protecting the floor, it comes in handy to help free up the work stand. I need to make another one and maybe I can make some pics this time. It would be great if someone could do a sand cast like it out of aluminum or iron. Here is a link to the thread. It is in my last post near the bottom of the page. Oh yea, I'm not holding my breath about winning a million from DG. LOL!!!
