    gear reduction screw jack handle

    Found this old screw jack and thought I would use it today to lift a small car to change the brake pads only I didn't have a handle for it
    A length of 3/8 rebar a little heat and a handle was born.
    the end that connects to the jack is shaped like a Sheppard's hook similar to a 2/3rds "S" the other end is just bent to be a crank the jacke and handle worked great

    When I have to paint I use
