I bought some basic cheap stands from Harbor Freight a while back, but I like the look of these. Aside from overall coolness, does this design have any advantages over the old-school pyramid-based design?
Good idea on the drilled/tapped holes to keep the hockey pucks in place. That ought to take care of the pucks sliding around once and for all. I may just have to do that today...I have the same stands under the Husky brand. I drilled and tapped a 1/4-20 hole in the top of each stand so I could put a hockey puck on with a socket-head cap screw and washer. I drilled a 1/2" countersink about halfway through so the screw head would be recessed. I also cut the grooves in the bottom of the puck like pixlpush did. So the pucks stay on/don't get lost but I can remove them if I want.
And, nice find on the price. I ordered a pair of ramps and chocks. thx.
I built a set of 8' ramps from a sheet of 3/4 inch solid plywood. They are 12" tall, 12" wide, and nearly 8' long. Everything is screwed together using decking screws. Very solid and plenty of clearance making it easy to work under the car for oil changes, etc. The long slope makes it easy to back onto with someone standing behind providing help. The 2x4s on the bottom are probably not needed for additional stability, but I like to over engineer stuff. The bottom view shows an additional piece (duplicate of the side pieces) down the center attached to the sides with the small gusset pieces providing plenty of weight bearing strength.
