After thousands of people requested information on the Belly stand (ok, I'm sure somebody thought about requesting information), I've drawn up a set of plans for jackstand/belly stand that is height adjustable, provides additional flexibility, and is reasonably easy to assemble. All the joints are lap joints rather than butt joints so if your welding is a little rusty, you can still assemble this jackstand with confidence. You can construct other center posts besides the saddle. I have a flat top center post with a bottle jack bolted on to it. What follows are 3 .gif images of the information on this jackstand. They are located on the Cub photo server so you can get and print the full-size versions. If you find any problems or things are not clear, drop me a PM.
â†’â†’â†’ CONSTRUCTION QUALITY AND USE OF THIS JACKSTAND IS A HEALTH & SAFETY ISSUE â† â†â†
If you are not confidant in your welding and assembly skills, do not put one of these jackstands together and then complain when your tractor falls on your leg.
I have some pictures of my prototype that I will be posting shortly.
