    Air jack

    The videos explain it all. Basically an air jack to get the cars up quick. But definitely use jackstands. I also made a vid finding the glitch in the air jack.





    Basic idea:my numbers are off in the vid, think the psi was 80



    close up how it's put together:



    stability test:



    the glitch...TOTALLY UNSTABLE!!!

    here is mine I use for lifting my tall Baja Bug/Air jack-2013-01-04_15-22-34_91.jpgthese seem to be from a big rig. I can actually jack it up and use about 100psi and move the vehicle side to side

    The concepts, I like. Leery about the safety aspect though.
