Seen this today at a swap meet/ flea market today laying between bunch of junk asked how much he told me $10 set it in my wagon and snatched the money out my wallet. I already have a stand by it was a cheap one not very sturdy. This one is way better

its a bench mount and I don't have a bench where I wanted to put so I used a piece of 6 x6 and 2x8 and made a place to mount it.
