M1-Series Tank: Turret Maintenance Stand Fabrication Plans

BLUF: The turret maintenance stand for the M1-series tank is unit-fabricated rather than ordered.
Dear Half-Mast,
I’m looking for the NSN for the turret maintenance stand for the M1-series tank. Can you help?

Dear Sir,
No and yes. The M1-series turret stand, PN 12284871, isn’t orderable. It’s an item units must fabricate. You’ll find the plans and all the related info needed to make the stand in the Maintainer Maintenance Illustrated List of Manufactured Items section in TM 9-2350-264-40-2-2 (Sep 11, w/Ch 1, May 13) for the M1A1, TM 9-2350-388-13&P (Feb 22) for the M1A2 SEPv2 and TM 9-2350-412-13&P (Sep 22) for the M1A2 SEPv3.
