Not sure I understand the purpose of this unit. Beyond a rather elaborate holder for a complete rear end assembly.

Nice tool for rear axle work. The only thing I see missing is the drip pan.

If the two arms in the back would reach out under the spring shackles and the heights of the front and back were adjustable, and it had wheels under it, it would be an excellent tool for installation of the rear axle in the car. However, I wouldn't want to put the weight of the car on it with the supports right in the middle of the tubes.

I would love to have one. I built the one I use from old hospital bed legs,and it is on rollers. It works fine,but I would still like to have an original.

I plan on posting pictures of some of the neat positions that this tool can put the rear into for servicing. It will take some time for me to take the pictures and post them...possibly a week. I am not an expert posting pictures on this site. I just did my first one today and my nerves are shot!

Arnold is that hole in the back so that that whole fixture can be rotated if so where is the other piece?

That's a very nice Weaver Axle Stand. The two drip pans are missing but they would be easy to make.

K.R.Wilson has one like it that holds the front axle or the rear.

Looks like the edge of that anvil has been worked off too. Please tell us you don't pound on cold steel on it....

I have a K.R. Wilson front/rear axle jig that I am considering selling. I think mine is actually a little later than a T and was sold to be used with a T, A, or V-8 front/rear axle. What is standing in my way is what to ask for it??? I might could deliver to Chickasha!

Verne There was a nice KR Wilson axle stand there last year for 1500.00. I think it sold first day in the parking lot ... There was another one there for 2500.00 that Im not sure if it sold or not ...

Arnold & Herm

Here is my Weaver Stand in use. Very handy for rebuilding front or rear ends and steering columns.

Weaver also made a cheaper version that used chains to lock the axle housings in place. only ever seen one of these

Here are a few photos

In Sweden, it is difficult to find these, had to make their own wood.

Arnold, Herm, Mark, & Ake,

Thank you all for taking the time to post the photos of the original Weaver rear axle maintenance stand. Also for the do-it-yourself wooden rear axle dolly and engine stand for the many of us who could use the tool but do not have the room or only plan to use it once or twice.

The automobile and of course the Model T brought a lot of secondary manufacturing with it. There is a short History of Weaver at: http://www.castleequipment.com/Museum/history_of_weaver_manufacturing.htm I’m glad folks are preserving and in many cases still using the original equipment.

For Arnold,

I know I had difficulty posting photos initially. I would recommend start a “Photo Test” thread and just practice a little. For example now that you were able to post your first picture, you know that photo is small enough to post yet shows up nicely. You could repost it a few times on your test thread. That way you know it should post and it is not a size issue. You can also just “preview” your posting and not actually post it if you want. Most of the time if a photo shows up in my preview it will show post properly for me. Often when I have three or more photos in a posting only 2 or 3 will show up in my “preview” but the rest will show up when it is actually posted. And when I have one that is too large – the forum program says “one or more of your attachments (or something like that) are too large.” It automatically deletes the files that are too large and only leaves the ones that are small enough to post. If I am posting several photos I keep checking after I add a few. That way when it deletes one or both of them – I know it is only the last two photos that were too large and not one of the earlier ones.

For Mark,

I love the photos of your “junk yard!” I can remember when those could be found in several places. But they are becoming fewer and fewer.

Again, thank you all for sharing.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

I grew up in Springfield, IL where the Weaver plant was located. My step dad ran a frame and front end alignment shop and had several weaver tools including floor jacks and some alignment gauges. It was very heavy duty stuff and probably overkill by modern standards.
