Default Engine Run-up stand

Has anyone bought an engine run up stand that they would recommend purchasing? I buy and sell engines a lot and it seems that if I could prove the engine runs with good oil pressure that I could charge alittle more as well as rent it out for people wanting to do a break or have an engine they bought checked. I been looking at the ones on summit but was going to check on here for some recommendations.

Make one up yourself with stuff laying around or picked up second hand.

I use one of those $30 ebay SBC rolling engine carts. Its tiny, but it doesn't take up any room and I fire my engines up on them often, just don't let them run for more than a minute without water in them.

I also usually just take the plate above the oil filter off, drill/tap it for 1/8 - 27 NPT and screw in a $15 0-100 PSI gauge from Marshall or somewhere. 2 bolts to add/remove oil pressure gauge with no wiring or lines to deal with.
