Thanks Jeremy, I dont think im stealing from anyone, I thought long and hard on the price!

Well lets start with the specs;

Ultra Low - 1lb 4.2 oz (573 grams)
Low - 1lb 5.1 oz (606 grams)
Regular - 1lb 7.3(661 grams)
^-- All are made out of 17 gauge. They are not heavy, but very strong! If you want it lighter just tell me what gauge you want and ill make it.

Also sry to dissapoint but the metal used atm is just regular sheet metal, but its still lite in its weight.

I held one of these today & it was very nice... I like the straight-forward design, & the quality is nice, with smooth edges & bends. I think you're on to something with these Ty, good job.

Hey guys I just got back from the shop, and great news. Ive decided not to go with aluminum, but instead im going with Zink Plated Galvanized Metal. I am going from a 17 guage to a new 22 guage metal, it weights much less, and its stronger than I thought it was going to be. Its still like a tank, but light as a feather!

Ill have some pictures up tommorw of the new v2 stands with the drilled holes for the add-ons, but first lets see its new weight;

11.3 oz
322 grams

So its about 250 grams lighter!
^--- These will be the ones ships to all pre-excisting orders.

Ok ok here we go now, the new v2 stand that ive been promising to show! (Less the rubber grips)







^--- As you can see where the Purple washers are, that is where the Motor Fans will go. Depending on the location of your motor you can move it down or up. We will make adjustable fan sliders, so you can get it dialed in perfect! There will be overhead and side fan brackets. Depending on if your motor is vertical or horizontal.

v2 Stands are allready almost gone, so place your order soon, or you'll have to wait until I get another batch made.

$15 shipped to your door!
