Yes, it counts! :) One of my rules with welders is they must create their own stand. I did cheat a while back with a HF $30 special for the MM140 and Hobart 250ci plasma.

I like Zach's suggestion of pulling the sink to get at it to put some kind of backing in. It depends on how much of a project you want.
