    Very well done! Martin's version is the simplest I assume. Then comes the "simple" version by UHU02 and the detailed UHU02 version. :)

    Wheels are strong as any force applies goes around the structure and is absorbed well. If you have a crack in a piece of steel, many times it can be stopped by drilling a hole at the end of the crack. This gives time for welding without further damage. If a cast Iron cylinder head develops a crack, the same procedure can be done, instead of welding, a pin is pressed into hole with an interference fit, and that saves the cylinder head. The pins must be milled down to be flush with the head , of course. :)

    @lyter1958 , great job! I can only encourage you to tackle UHU02's version :) His work is the "Gold Standard" for detail and brilliance I think (No disrespect to any other deisigners :))

    Cool to see that the stand works. While Martin made the station I created the base, including the graphic.

    the stand is great, and the graphic is perfect backdrop. the only problem i really had was when each time i started to work on it, that damn BLUE DANUBE kept playing in my head...
    ooohhhh crap, there it goes again....:hammerhead:
