    I have limited experience working with a table top stringer, 99% of the time I've used a stand based stringing machine. Recently I purchased a ML 100 and I am surprised by how much I'm enjoying stringing on it.
    BUT I miss being able to walk around it. (It's on one of my workbenches)
    I like the idea of a stand you can break down for travel (I do some tournament stringing) but have concerns about stability (maybe over thinking this)
    Any thoughts ?

    I have the same machine and bought this:

    The gray stand matches the machine. Very sturdy - have been using mine for 5.5 years.

    It is not portable as it does not break down. It would only travel well if you have a van or SUV with plenty of room.

    I didn't but you could cut a board for the middle level and bolt it in to make a tool stand. I just lay my tools around the machine on the top level.

    I used a Craftsman 5-drawer tool center on wheels. The storage comes in very handy.

    Ouch on the price of that one! Home Depot(Husky, I believe) has a two-shelf cart for $49.99(look for holiday sales) with pretty serious wheels and a pretty high weight capacity(sturdy, in other words). For closer to $100, I'd be looking at a nice microwave cart with a drawer and doors for the 'furniture' look ;) .

    The fall garage sales might be a good source, depending on the weather in your area...OR check Craigs for a kitchen or m/w cart.

    For the techie look, try a 'project cart' from Sears or HD/Lowe's. I long ago converted mine back to a garage work cart, but I had my MS200tt on it for a couple of years.

    Of course, these aren't great travel carts, but I might add a 'project work surface' that breaks down like the 'X' model Husky at Home Depot for those tournament excursions.
