I do have another topic to put up, but I thought I would interrupt with something different.
During the photoshoot of the stem removal, I used a friend's workstand. He mentioned where he got his online and said they had them on special sometimes. I went there and bought the slightly stronger more robust one and the following pics show it in detail

You mention the special, but not the price or the store.

This particular one wasn't on special (so I thought), and appears to be gone from their web catalogue so I can't check. The store is torpedo7.com.au. I'm usually a little hesitant putting sites out there, some forums don't take to kindly to it.
This one was just under $100 sans shipping. If you are a first time buyer, you get a $10 voucher, which would cover the shipping.

I bought one of these back in April (when it was on special) - it has lasted well and, with delivery, was around the $90 mark.

Good to know, it looks a little more sturdy then the one I used, and the clamp won't rotate with my bike on it like the cheaper one.

I've had one just like the pic for a couple of years. There are better ones but it folds up well and does its job.
I have a spare seatpost that lives it the jaws so i dont actually clamp onto the bike. I just pull the seatpost out of the bike and support my project by the spare seatpost i slide in. Anyway even if you only use it to adjust your gears and clean your bike it will be money well spent.
