Figured this was a good place to post another diy stand. No welding, just a piece of scrap used.

I like it...:hump: Very simple design and easily put together. The legs/feet are big enough to firmly stand on so the engine doesn't move when using a torque wrench. Is that perforated steel easy to find at hardware stores in the US - I am guessing it is for steel shelves??

Thanks! It was just a piece of scrap I found at work…no telling how long it had been around. It is aluminum, and it will probably flex some while torquing but for now it’ll work.
