Anyone need an engine stand?

I just bought one from harbor freight, they have it on sale for $39.99 from $54.99. all of the other places I have looked were closer to $100

I will not buy anything from harbor freight that will have weight under it, after having one of their 5 ton jack stands collapse on me.

That is why I only use mine to set my axle on while I'm working on it. I hope it can support 500 LBS.
