Default Open Workstation

I'm looking to get one of those open workbench/station or any other name they go buy and I'm having trouble finding a good selection of them

Does anybody have any preference or recommendations for a cheap frame with a mobo tray?

Lowfat have one thatis pretty awesome but I can't remember the name. Or, you can order a MOBO tray from mountain mod. It will end upa t like 70+ship, If you don't mind puting some part aside it's the best way to go.

Thanks for the suggestion these removable mobo trays are pretty much the base of what I'm looking for.

I use a Tecnofront HWD. But it isn't very cheap. But if you are good with tools you could always just either buy a motherboard tray like martin says or you could cut one out of an old case.

Google Microcool Banchetto, and Dimastech. The 2 best out there, IMO, but you'll pay large dollars for them.

The HighSpeed Tech Stations are a more economical bench.

I made my own out of 2 pieces of plexiglass and some Aluminum L angles.

I use the mobo box nothing fancy but works well.

branchetto is really nice. I think Martin managed to get is hands on a Collermaster mobo tray for 11 $ or so.
