    A better crank for my scissor jack

    Bought a scissor jack from Princess Auto,that's sort of Canada's rendition of Harbour Freight. Jack was OK,the handle to crank it up was terrible! So I took this crank from a dead snowblower chute and welded a short piece of flattened 1" steel pipe to it and that's that.It's simple and it makes using the jack quite a bit easier than the crap little hooked piece of metal that came with the jack.

    I think I would have added for use or not a hole in the crushed pipe to attach the pipe to the jack if needed to push and pull under the car without having to reach under the car or?
