not a welder so I built my version of a "splitting stand" to support the front of the tractor while i dismember its front feet for paint and powdercoat. material is 11/16 exterior plywood glued and gusseted...shouldn't go anywhere. front jack stands were left in place until glue cures.
The offset design makes for weird physics to get your head around when jacking up this little guy. Height of it is a real problem.
Even with the wood wedges it just gave me the creeps so i strapped the rear axle to the stands with tie downs.
