    Jack handle floor/ grease scraper

    In my 50+ year career I have worn many hats far too many to elaborate on
    but one of my favorite hats has always been to come up with a unique way to simplify my work.
    When crawling under a machine such as a dozer or a truck I often require the assistance of a hydraulic jack sometimes the floor is not the perfectly smooth clean concrete surface we would rather be working on. Naa it is often packed earth or gravel and never as level as it could be. usually riddled with protruding stones that the jack from having a good level spot to sit on.
    OK, I could crawl out from under and grab a shovel or something to clear the obstruction or I could do this.
    Simply find an old broken garden hoe, straighten the handle spike and weld that into the off end of my jack handle. I can still use it to tighten or loosen the bleeder screw or use it to pump the jack up but more importantly the other end is now a useful scraper to clear away debris from the floor surface or knock packed on dirt and grease off of the machine. It also saves me time in not having to search for another tool to drag under a machine which always is a cramped space to begin with.
