A good lap and when running the blades up to track them, some dive weights and block of plywood across the skids to hold it down. LOL.
Never had the money or desire to use a work stand.

I used to have the same problem, but solved it by magnetizing my screwdrivers and allen keys that are used on my RC's. I just took a magnet from a worn out car motor, and stroked the shank of the screwdriver with it going in one direction only.
