    Default Best Engine Stand

    You guys have bored me to death with boost, not counting temp, mag, rod angle... jeez. This is something we ought to be able to argue about.
    What engine stand is your favorite? Mine is AXE. BUT, I have an early AXE with 3 wheels, not 4. I may build one, or buy another. I just think the "head" area in many is the weak point. To adjustable for american v8 stuff. Not rigid enough.
    So, what you got?

    I have a Blackhawk. I bought it about 25 years ago. Four wheels, the head spins really nice and I haven't had an engine do a double back flip on it like my cheap-ass three wheel deal did before I bought this one. Oh yea, it has a drip pan too.

    I like the 4 wheels I style. NOT the big ass square. To easy to trip over. I think I cut my teeth on the axe... that is why it is my fav.
    It rotates well. A crank handle MAY be a little easier, but not huge. I like the engine is angled upward a little. I have had my full dressed, steel head, dart block, dart head, 10-71 blower on mine. COMPLETE
    Now, with the 3 wheels, it was overloaded. But... didn't break.
    4 wheel version would have been better.
    Maybe I'll build one, AXE style, bearing head, not as universal fit, though.
    I have to many projects going on for 3 stands now. F me.

    I got one of these from Jeg's for christmas. Best $200 bucks you could spend.
    Of course i took it apart to see how the gear mechanism was made and believe it or not I like it. Large steel gear and a smaller steel worm gear with grease zerts. smooth rotation and a real heavy made head on the stand. The thing weighed a alot in the box. I bought stripped a gear carrying it into the shop. Great deal

    Not a good shot of the stand, but shows what it can hold.

    Liquid Dan on the boards, Dan Aaseth's CM (Canyon Marine) by far the best.

    I bought one from Dan back in 08, I happened to catch him at home right after a show and got an assembled unit.... I have about 8 or 10 others, but they quickly became "storage stands", the CM is clearly the best stand I've ever used.....

    The CM looks like an AXE with much better casters and a bearing rotating head.
    It looks nice.
    Maybe just update my old Axe pieces, or build one.
    Shipping would be a raping for me.

    I'm gonna keep beating this horse.
    I like most about Dan's stand except the open ends. Note how the Axe has a nice taper to it. Maybe it is habit. If you build tons of engines, long hours, tired, it is convenient not to trip over stuff.
    Now, back in the day I used to work my ass off on assembly and dyno. Now, not though. YEA for me!

    Does Dan's rotate to freely? Meaning if engine isn't centered somewhat weight wise... does it try to flip around FAST?

    Thats whats nice about that hand crank model i posted up. It turns over real easy and you can just turn loose of it at any point and the engine will stay put.
