Being lazy, although I did a search of past post. Looking for some general dimensions to make my own rear axle holder for rebuild. Thanks

There was a post, a year or 2 ago, where someone had repurposed a disc brake rotor into a rear axle holder by cutting a slot in it.
Don't have dimensions, but you get the idea.

Ring gear is about right size for hole.

I used a piece of 2 x 8, drilled a 3" hole. Kind of crude but it worked. I think a larger hole would have been better. The ring gear size as suggested by Dallas might be good.

I just used old plywood. But steel would have been better. Maybe on the next one.

I just made one today. Measurements for a differential rear axle holder. Using a 2 x 8 or a 2 x 12 mark a 2.5 inch space near the center of an end. Then mark two 6 inches from the end then a 3.5 inch circle with the diameter at the 6 inch mark. Using a circular saw cut 6 inches and to the edge of the circle from the end of the wood on both sides of the 2.5 inch space. Using a jig saw cut a 3.5 inch circle with the diameter drawn at the 6 inch mark. Nail firmly to a sawhorse or bench.

Wood rear axle holder measurements.

Wood rear axle differential housing holder.

Why go to so much trouble? I just place my rear axle assembly between two railroad ties, and put it together. What could be easier?

All from scraps on hand.

I think a 2 piece like @Steve Jelf would be easier to make. But since I am mounting mine on a saw horse and not a table I obtained a scrap 2 x 12 from a local construction site and did a one-piece.

Better hurry up and get it finished before the train comes.

I use this wood vice holds a complete Ruckstell nice and tight. I clamp a crutch to the work bench to support the driveshaft when installing or setting up the diff.
