I thought you would have snow by now. Looks like spring there.

The only snow here is what is on the north side of things where it is shaded. Been in the 40s the last few days. Just have to get Nebraska to quit sucking.

We did the same, I was pretty good on one. One day I came flying through the back room on the smooth shiny concrete with a crowd of onlookers. I smartly cut the handle sharply and pushed the back end hard and did a beautiful 360 and slid right up next to another one that was sitting there, jumped off and the handle spun around and hit me in the nuts. It was a great show for the onlookers as I limped away all red faced.

Crown did get back with me and they do not have a parts schematic. Disappointing, but I will get through this without a diagram.

Were you able to finish this jack? I have a pallet mule jack I need to reseal. I've never done this before. How do you decide what material to use for the seals? Then it is just measuring rod diameter? I appreciate any tips you have for doing this.

Thanks,
Mike

Turned out they not only did not have a diagram, they did not have parts either. Sadly, I decided to scrap the project. You can just measure ID and OD and use o rings that fit and the same for seals. Not much help, but that is all I got.

Can you make new parts if needed? Good lathe project.
