<p />This is a stand i made for our mini egg,it folds up and is easy to put in the car.I bought a folding bar stool from Target's,removed the padded seat and mounted a flange plate on the top,i got the flange plate from a mechanical contractor,it works great and is light weight,football season is right around the corner.

    YB,[p]Just came back from a business trip yesterday and look what people (like you) are doing. The stand looks great. I may have to (must) give that a try![p]Any detailed info would be very helpful.[p]Smokey

    Nature Boy,
    Thanks,i got the idea from seeing Earl's mini stand.

    If you live near a Target store, go look at their bar stools,this one locks in place when open and folds down flat,they had 2 sizes i got the tall one.When you remove the seat there is a recessed area the mini will set down in,if you can't find a flange plate you could put 3" carriage bolts about 4 or 5" apart in a circle around mini.

    YB,[p]Are the bolts to hold the mini in the stool? Doesn't the tapper of the egg work for that? I'll look today![p]Thanks[p]Smokey

    Maybe i should go and buy all the stools at Target and sell them on the forum.

    Great setup! ...and speaking of football season...all the advice I can give you and even though u seem to have a secure structure there...BE CAREFUL as u roll it around, or u will be spending a good portion of your free time repairing humpty. Trust me on that one :)
