    I've been looking for a decent foldable stand for a small combo for some time. I've got a cut-down milk crate that is perfect for my Peavey Max 115 but my little Schertler B10 is actually a quarter inch or so too narrow for the crate.

    All the ones i've found for sale are either too shallow front-to-back (the Schertler is deeper than it is wide and a bit front heavy) or they don't fold flat. So..... i decided to make one myself.

    I had a black timber shelf laying in the garage for over 6 years without being used so it got cut up with a jigsaw and had a couple of hinges installed. All up it cost me $4.50 for the hinges plus a few strips of gaff tape. I intend to get some rubber on the contact points but for now the gaff is doing the job. It is really steady and allows a decent range of angles for different stages. I'm pretty happy with the results.

    Nice, simple solution, and compact. Thanks for the idea!

    Another option would be a spring loaded recessed handle on the bottom of the cab. Stealth, no extra stand to carry, and pretty cheap.

    I actually looked into doing something like that but didn't feel comfortable drilling into the cab anywhere and, without more design skill than i have, it would only provide for one angle.
