Ok so the other week I decided I would make my own bike stand. Just so I can work on my bike a little easier etc,

looks pretty awesome mate :) you could sell these would save people money on buying the expensive park tools etc ones

Edit: just add a extra clamp to hold the bike off the floor and your sorted.

Ahhh, thanks, makes so much more sense now aha!

Have you ever welded before? If not thas a really good first timer.. MIG, MAG, MMA, SPOT? Which one?

Very unlikely it's spot as that's primarily used on sheet metal and MIG/MAG are the same thing!

Does look really smart though :) Seems like a well thought out job. If you've got the time, skills and equipment definitely worth doing. Saying that I bought a Pedros work stand: http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=13795 14 years ago and it's still as good as the day I bought it! So they may seem expensive to start but certainly worth the money.

Its a mig welder i used. And yeah its my first time welding, ive done quite a bit of soldering etc in the past, and thought welding would be really hard but it was pretty easy to be fair, they were abit uglier before i cleaned them up but im really happy at how clean they look.
