I recently bought a MITTLER BROS 36" bead roller for doing embossed panels and auto interiors. The machine is FABULOUS but the stand that they offered fell short of what was needed. The roller rocked back and forth due to the one point mounting.

SOOOO I bought a harbor freight engine stand and added the following pieces to make it a solid mount and portable. I came off the engine mounting flange with a 2x2 square tubing forward and then down to the front of the stand. then came off the tubing with 4 pieces of 2x2 tubing to support the table. the uprights are 3/8 1 1/2 flat bar and the table supports are the same flat bar. The tubing affords a place to mount the spare dies. Now it is rock steady and portable .
