I'm making a somewhat large electric ride-on toy and was looking for a cheap or nearly free differential so that when he drives it on the lawn I don't have to follow him with grass seed ;-)
I could use anything... even a differential from a smallish car. Have lathe, have mill, can hack anything up. Just need the carrier and the four gears inside. That's the difficult piece to make ;-)
If I don't find anything I have an audi transaxle (crosses to the Porsche 944) and I can hack that up for it's differential. I was trying to avoid it because it's a large diameter unit and gross overkill. This thing's going to have 4HP of electric motor now, and when my son's older (say, 10) it will have a 18-20HP electric start mower engine. So I don't need something wild and radical.
