You don't need a yoke. Tore down and built mine the 1st time on a table.

Is a yoke nice? Yep. But it's not a requirement.

There is another reason to skip the "T" style engine stands: they are hard to mount a catch pan on top of the legs. With "heavy duty" 2 leg style, you can place a couple of boards across the legs and put your drip pan on top.

You don't need a lot of stuff, but it sure is nice... Such as impact gun, engine hoist, Dremel, air compressor, etc...

i can't imagine not having an engine stand, and therefor the yoke... Plus, you can sell it later if needed...

Affirmative. There's a reason all terrain vehicles (ATVs) now have 4 wheels instead of 3.

True. The only tool I bought that was 100% needed since my homemade one failed was the cam holding tool.
