Too bad you don't ever do any good projects.

Seriously though, very nice work as usual.

I dont know if it was just me, but on the first post in 4th picture all I saw was a damn nice clamp... The rest of the build looks good though.

Great job. What is the travel of the jack? Mine only do a couple of inches.

Looks like a lot of work, but a good end result!

Ok, While the project looks great and the design is nice and simple.. will you put side runners on the sides of the toe plate piece or leave as is? I like that you capped off the top port.. This should act as an air spring of sorts..

I was befuddled by the 5th picture in the first post..

You have a QC tool post with a nice handle on it.. then you also have a top nut with a nice handle on it..

took me like a minute and a half to figure out what you had done.. I will copy that idea..

Does the handle on the top nut have other index locations or just the one?

Learned something today.. Now I can go back to bed..

Good job on that. And T1 will not bend on that lifting hook.
Too bad I don't need a toe jack, that looks like a interesting project. And I do have a cylinder collection.

Looks real good Ted, I bought one of the Jet toe-jacks thats a modification of a standard bottle jack, toe-jacks are very useful equipment to have, you won't use it every day, but when you need it, its a God send.
