    Bike stand tool tray

    Hi all,

    A few months ago some kind soul gave me a Park tool PRS-6 single arm repair stand. It seems pretty old but is in good shape, aside from a few dings here and there.

    I'd like to get a tool tray for it, but the ones I'm finding on internet sites (including Parks) say the only model available fits the PCS-1, PCS-4, PCS-9, PCS-10, PCS-11, and PRS-15 stands.

    The post on the PRS-6 is about 5 inches in circumference, giving it about a 1.6" diameter. Hard to tell from web photos whether one of those tool trays would fit...but the stands in the photos appear to have narrower posts.

    Can't seem to find a tray by another manufacturer, either.

    So far I've been using a DIY tray an aluminum foil baking pan held in place with duct tape. It's gotten pretty banged up, but is better than nothing.

    Any comments, suggestions or insights?

    Thanks.

    If you can't find a suitable Park commercial tray a better DIY version could be made from a a more substantial aluminum or plastic pan or tray fastened to the colum using a stainless steel hose clamp.

    Thanks for the replies. Yeah, I'd forgotten about the 105. No idea when my stand was manufactured. I think I wanted to forget about the 105 – darn thing is more expensive than the other one.

    My cheapo aluminum tray is actually fastened with a metal clamp from the local hardware store, with a threaded rod screwed into it and jutting out about eight inches. That plus the duct tape. I tried a metal cake pan – only one I could find is teflon, and the tape barely sticks!

    I'll keep at it.

    I made a tool caddy out of a plastic peg board piece. Its about 12" long with 3 bins & holes. I used two "U" clamps with a piece of wood. The wood is inside the plastic & the U bolts go thru the wood with the nuts on the backside. If you look around the home center you'll probably find something you could attach to the stand.chris

    My stand is not a Park brand, but I use a magnetic parts tray that I bought from Harbor freight. Attaches to the stand anywhere that is made of steel. Also any parts or tools that are made of steel remain inside too. If you don't have a HFT near you, I have seen these at other places like auto parts stores and hardware stores.

    Flying an airplane is really very simple...Push the stick forward, the house gets big. Pull the stick back, the house gets small. Keep holding the stick back, the house gets big again.

    On one of my stands I use a fairly heavy plastic lunch tray. I used a hole saw to make an appropriate hole and square plumbing drain for support and a drain compression fitting which allows adjustment up or down. I also drilled holes to organize my hex wrenches, screwdrivers, etc. It is very functional and sturdy. I was never happy with the Park cast aluminum part. It was just not very functional.

    Another possibility is a small plastic hinged lid tool box. Mine is 12"Lx7"Wx5"D (with the lid closed). Bracket it from the lower section positioned so the lid hinges away from the repair stand. It gives you two compartments for tools (the bottom and the open lid) and can be closed to protect the tools when not in use. My "Wrench Force" labeled Feed Back Sports stand came with a dedicated tool box set up just this way.

    I have a feedback sport stand I’m very happy with. http://feedbacksports.com/shop/Sport...tand-P3C1.aspx and their tool tray is http://www.campmor.com/feedback-sport-repair-stand-tool-tray.shtml?source=CI&ci_sku=51443BLK&ci_gpa=pla&ci_kw={keyword** I also am looking for something and if I left my stand up all the time this would work great, but I take mine up and down and also take it here and there in my car. So I would have to remove the tools and put them in a box and setup each time. What I’m looking for is a toolbox of sorts that I can drop onto pin in hole type thing that’s attached to the stand. Being able to fold the stand down small and set up quick would be great. I haven’t seen anything like that so I might have to make my own.

    Do you have a link to the box you have?
