So you want to make a chassis stand, no problem just slap this together :shock:

That chassis stand is a thing of beauty and reflects the guys skills at design and manufacturing.
He should be rightly proud of his well thought out design and machining work.

It looks like it would be a dream to use. I think I would want to keep a chassis in it all the time just so I could adjust the position a couple of time a day.

Obviously, if you couldn't manufacture your own, one like that would probably cost close to a $1000 bucks or more to have manufactured domestically.

Looks like a good excuse to purchase a few thousand dollars worth of machine tools. :wink:

He sure didn't cut any corners did he?

The one I have was called "The Chassis Handler" by Carlton Carver.

I remember when he was selling them at the radio meets such as ARCI Radiofest, but it seems nobody on this forum remembers this thing. :|

It can hold a hefty chassis without a problem, rolls around on casters AND frees up bench space.
