a few years ago there was this piece of tooling on wheels, kind of a cart or base, or stand of somesort sitting around our machine shop yard. it was kinda rusty and it never got used. so one day I asked my boss what was it for? he said they welded it up for a job then the job was canceled so its just been floating around for years. so I asked if I could have it to make something out of it. he said sure. so I brought it home and made a axle stand out of it. I widened to fit just outside my spring pearches just between the pearch and flange of my crewcab 14FF. then I had to make some way to support the axle so I welded up these legs and used the "V" tops off my pipe jack stands. I even got a hair up my but and thought HAY! I will make it adjustable up and down. so I bought 2 square "U" bolts so it would be easier to pull out, kinda like a handle, and made pins out of them to hold the legs up with different riser holes. I turned up two teflon rings for the jack screw handles to spin on, figured it would be less friction when trying to level the axle. the problem I ran into was when I bought my blazer then got my 14FF for that truck I found out the spring pearches were obviously a different width. so the axle did not sit in the "V" well. it could not spin 360 deg without hitting a pearch since the width of the stand is fixed. so I had to add in a adjustable riser that could be adjusted side to side. I just take one V jack screws out of the stands riser leg and put it into the adjustable slider riser and position it where ever I want then tighten it down to take the movement out of it. ok, this stand is WAY OVERKILL and completely unnecessary, BUT! EVERY PIECE of material for this stand was given to me by my boss except for the jack screws. everytime I ask do you mind if I use this he allways says use what you want, I dont care. it does work great for holding an axle to work on it. here are some pics.
