[TheThinkTank] Shop repair stands

When I came to manage 3rd Ward Bikes, there were 2 double Park Stands that
used to be anchored to the concrete floor.  They had been dis mounted and
stored.  I was able to barter a bike repair for some steel plates. My point
is that there are work arounds for bases. Concrete filled truck rims, for
example.  Save a bit more and buy wall mounted clamps and bolt them into a
4x4 that has been set upright in a concrete filled truck rim.  Hit the
scrap yard and look around.

Hello everyone.
This email is for asking on reocmendations on repair stands. Since you have
been uploading the DIY ones we have some odeas on doing some to move around
but on the shop we have been using a portable plastic repair stand and we
have decided on buying a shop one that might last longer and will make it
easier to fix bikes (the plastic ones usually dont support heavy bikes and
we have suffer some accidents with bike moving down the stand)
Some time bak we looked at teh park tool deluxe stand and now that we might
be able to purchase it we find out that the base is not included and that
costs $300 more.
So, any recomendations on a shop stand, not the plastic ones, that we can
buy with $400 us dollars? Or have you made your own base to put the park
tool stand that has worked?
