    PWC Stands

    I just finished two stands for my buddies and my GP1300Rs. What I like about it is the fact that it is an I beam frame construction instead of a perimeter frame. This allows easy access to the bottom of the ski when working underneath. (who wants to lay on a frame) Plus things can easily be stored under the ski. Also the fact that it totally disassembles in minutes. That way when its ski season, I can disassemble and store without taking up a large footprint like a totally welded stand. The stands are the perfect height for working on the engine, and for removal from the trailer only takes one person. Made from 2 inch 1/8 thick square tube and angle iron. Also some flat stock, 2x4 wood, carpeting for the bunks, and hardware. Rolls nicely on 4 1/2 inch rubberized casters and each stand can be disassembled for storage, and can support up to 1000lbs. Let me know what you think!!

    Thanks Lee. I thought the pictures were a little small and dark, so I added some more. Just to let you know, we lowered the back of a 1997 Mercury Mountaineer down on the assembled stand (it was under the rear axle) and it held fine for an hour or so. 2" 1/8 thick is complete overkill. It was funny seeing the Mountaineer that high in the air. I bet it was more than 1000lbs though LOL!

    Thanks for the kind words guys. Carl, having your stamp of approval is like getting "the" nod from the Grand Master himself! Your TuF Stands just ooze quality! Thank you! I had fun with this little project although it was more expensive to build my own than I anticipated. The casters cost almost as much as the rest of the materials! The satisfaction is looking at the finished project and knowing you built it yourself from the ground up. Thanks again for the kind words!

    These stands are very heavy. I wonder how one that was made out of aluminum and TIG welded would stand up?

    looks real nice, aluminum stand would be pretty nice. should hold the weight just fine as long as the tubing wall thickness is .120 wall or thicker and its braced or gusseted inn the correct spots.
