For those that fear for their fatmax lid. I bought a black folding stool from Walmart. It sits perfectly under the lid & supports it. When traveling it hooks perfectly onto the fatmax handle. I keep a few of these stools around in my festival tent for when I have to paint a super tall person.

As far as a good buy, my Fatmax is 3 yrs old now & looks just as good as the day I bought it. The 1st one I got I did return immediately because the handle was broke. I exchanged for the one I have now.

I don't stand to paint, I sit.

I made a support for the lid that works wonderfully, it fits in that v-groove on the top of the max when the lid is open and won't budge and gives strong support, even when kids are leaning on it.

with the lid open, I measured from the v-groove to the floor. I took two pieces of foam poster board and cut to that height. Then, I took duck tape and taped the two pieces of board together tightly on all four edges. When you place one edge in the v-groove and the bottom edge touching the wheels at an angle, the board doesn't have the opportunity to accidentally be kicked out. it provides a strong support, yet is lightweight to carry. I used black foam poster board and taped it with bright blue polka dot duck tape. then I used glittery self-adhesive letters and spelled out "Faces by Lorie" on it that people can see while in line. I also made one out of the holographic poster board using bright pink duck tape on the edges. It's easier to carry than a stool.

I also have a light weigh cork board in a frame on the lid and I have it bungied to the frame of the fat max so the table top won't come off.

your welcome ladies make sure your pipe fits snug into the flange and you will have to measure how long to make the leg
