Why do you want to have one made? This is a very inexpensive, off the shelf item.

Agreed. Look out on Craig's List for a used stand. Most people buy new and use it once or twice or never. Same with cherry picker hoists.

No doubt there are hundreds of them sitting in garages all over the country like last year's exercise equipment . . .

With the OP located in "Philippines, Provident Village" I doubt engine stands in garages anywhere in the USA will be much of a help!
