Interest In "an Alternative To Axlestands"

78 posts in this topic

Hey chaps, I have had a few people interested in the Foam blocks which I have lent to Dr H that I use as axle stands (safer on the undertray and really stable also allowing you to not have to take the undertray off!).

 

I am looking into making 4 off blocks 300mm x 312mm by 265mm tall.

They would cost between £20-30

Delivery costs I would need to check.

 

If anybody is interested then I can look at getting some material.

There maybe a minimum order qty so would depend on interest.

Hi

 

I'd be interested.

 

Is there someone cleverer than me that can calculate the density etc and confirm what sort of max weight these things could hold up? I would want some tolerance built in.

 

I know it's a bit H&S but I wouldn't mind knowing.

I don't really need a set as I send my car off to the likes of Gav to get their hands dirty, however if they come out more like £20 count me in :)
