    Been thinking about getting a bike stand to make it a little easier on my back. Was at the local swap shop and saw 2 music stands and since I would rather make something than buy it if I can so I bought both. Then realizing that it wasn't going to have a wide enough base started thinking what i could do. Coming home seen the dish on the side of the road. 20180518_191121.jpg sooooo going to attempt to make me a bike stand out of the stuff in the pic:39:

    Figured I needed something sturdier if I'm going to work on bikes. So using a base from a table and the other music stand and a clamp of some sort turned out a lot better than the first attempt 20181007_124555.jpg 20181007_124712.jpg 20181007_175628.jpg
    Thought I had a full pic will get one tomorrow
