Seen a guy on here build a tool stand out of an old rear axle so I figured I would build one out of a front diff.

Started out cleaning it up and giving it a shot of paint.





Next up was a rear drum brake of a tractor 3/16" plated to weld the 3" tubing to and an adapter plate for the differential to bolt to. I welded tabs to the bottom of the plate in case I wanted to add concrete but it doesn't seem to need it yet.





Bolted the diff to the stand and then started laying out the top plate. Top plate is 3/16" x 8" flat bar. I wanted to go heavier but I had this stuffing laying around.



Used the CNC to drill the bolt pattern.





Still need to finish it up and decide what I am going to but on it. So far it's the port-a-band, 8" grinder and tube notcher. Once I have everything mounted I will add some bracing to stiffen it up.



This is all I have done so far. Hope to finish it up soon but have other stuff higher on the list to get done.

Doing that as I type this. I am adding a block to the center with 4 outlets and a light stand.

Looks pretty cool..Hated having my bench vise mounted to a table, so I fabed up a old rim attached to some pipe and scrap plate...a movable bench vise comes in handy constantly! :D
