    I am always amazed at those old brick structures. Stacks like that one, light houses, brick homes etc, all with round, gracefully tapered sides are works of art. Straight flat walls are one thing, but those rounded, tapered profiles take a whole different level of skills. Imagine the hundreds of hours of skilled work to create those structures.

    It would take more nerve than I have to operate that jack. I don't run so fast anymore.

    I'll bet this group would figure out an automatic pumper for the jack.. old surplus motor, some scrap metal...
