Adjustable stock stand

For quite some time I’ve had it on my list to build some type of adjustable height stock stand but in the meantime I have muddled through projects with various impromptu props, all of which worked, just not very well. Recently though I spotted a steel table base in the trash of our local coffee shop and thought it would make the perfect base for a stock stand. After a little sketching with MoI and rummaging in the scrap pile (I did have to buy some 3/4″ threaded rod & nuts), the idea took shape. The resulting stand provides a stout & convenient support with heights ranging from 30″ to 56″. The photos and the sketch tell the story.
