The tripod legs on my Feedback stand took up way too much room in my small space and were awkward to work around, so I bought a 50-lb, 2-foot square outdoor steel umbrella stand base, yanked the legs off my stand and stuck the repair stand pole in and tightened. Much better.

I was going to do something like this, but ended up beefing up the tubes and a friend help me out with the welding.

Thanks

It is a magnetic parts tray from harbor freight. I cut out the bottom rubber and super glued it to the top.

Looks awesome. I’ve been planning a build too and decided on a heavy baseplate rather than a tripod. Mine will secure the bike by the front fork and bottom bracket. Shouldn’t really need to purchase any clamps. Just need to find the time and wait for a project at work that I can secure some suitable crops.
Do it and share. :D
Having a custom stand that fits your needs and size is nice. I also enjoy the process of building new things.
Been working on mine the past few days. Still need to build a stand for it but the hard part is mostly done.

Haven’t mounted a bike on it yet so it may need some refinement.
