500 bucks? I do believe I would jump on that. That's a good price.

Plus and engine crane some cinder blocks, a portable bandsaw/chopsaw, a 4" grinder and flapwheels, a pair of plumb bobs and a good set of levels. Plus the knowledge as to where all the stuff has to go and where the best attatch points are for the best strength while making it look like something built with pride.
Materials are cheap but knowing where to put them is key to a strong but not overbuilt stand.
I never finish anyth,,,.
