    As far apart as possible.. The wider the "rests" or whatever you call them the more supported the shaft will be.. Mine catches my trimmer's shaft directly in front of the engine, and about a foot from the head.. works great. I made mine like a giant gun rack, out of wood..The wood doesn't mess up the trimmer, and as much as I don't really like wood, it was cheap, strong, and a pretty nice design, IMO..
