    Looks like I have to place an order for a adj. stool

    None of the local and national stores including Harbor Freight, has a working stool, so I will be looking at Amazon.
    What would you order?

    I ordered the one from Autopia. Really like it because it rolls over pavers very easily.

    Huh, I`m surprised the Harbor Freight one isn`t available.

    It`s kinda funny how little I use mine (one I got from the old Imparts catalog in the `80s), but if I`m not just kneeling down I always end up just using a creeper instead..so much so that I now have three of them so I don`t have to carry one around the bay so often.

    If I were going to do another one this is the one I’d try. The fact that the seat is curved makes it so my butt wouldn’t slip off.

    HF has one with tires that look like snow thrower tires. I needed one that is adj. up & down and HF is not. When I am finished with the tires & wheels my back is just killing me.

    I wouldn`t mind finding something that is more comfortable than the Craftsman style that I`ve been using for a decade now. The HF version seems to have even less cushion.

    I think a big buying point on one would be the casters. The cheap ones have terrible casters. Most of this stuff is mail order so you can’t even try them out unfortunately

    My adjustable stool was one of the best things I`ve ever bought. I agree having the adjustable height is useful at times. I can see where gearhead is coming from. The curved seat would be nice. I`ve almost slid off of my seat more than once when moving around on it.

    I think my only issue with it is the lacking of height adjustability.

    I really like the Traxion mobile gear seat. Huge contoured seat. Height adjustable and big wheels that roll over everything except the hoses.

    The one I saw in their catalog was just like the one in the Autopia store link, although I didn`t count its casters. Pneumatic up/down, circular seat pad..just like the one I got from Imparts.

    I use my pneumatic stool often. with my bad back and somewhat bad knees, I use the stool and also the Autogeek knee pad to help avoid pain. Love those tools.

    The Traxion model up above looks like a nice option.

    Another option is the Mychanic Sidekick Stool. While the height is adjustable, it ISN`T pneumatic. But it`s kind of neat with additional features.
