XS750 rotating engine stand

I wanted to share the engine stand I designed tonight. Now all that’s left is to build it!

Nice ! Though I don’t know if you did but you should maybe try the design and apply weight on it with a soft like solidworks or other, it might bend with this heavy engine

I’ve just built one that is very similar and works great.

I ended up joining the top sides together to make sure it didn’t want to pull in at the top.

Hey Ben that looks great! What size square tube did you use?

Tube is 30x30mm with a 2mm thick wall.

Also make sure the pivot is approximately through the center of mass so its easy to rotate. I’ve got a drop of about 150mm which works well.

All welded up
