Homemade Car Jack Allows You To Merge Two Steps Into One

Posted by: Jesse Kleib on 11/17/2021

Normally, when you’re discussing what kind of tools to add to the collection, there’s probably some sort of debate going on as to whether you should spend the high dollar price tag and get something with a little bit of a reputation behind it or go with the cheaper tools and risk getting something that’s not so great but, also something that won’t break the bank on what could potentially be a great tool. This debate goes on and on at mechanic shops and garages around the country and probably always will.

This time, however, we check out the third category that I think a lot of people can really appreciate. Now, instead of going to the store to pick up the more expensive or the cheaper option, the people in this third category will instead decide to take a route of their very own, applying their know-how in the best way that they possibly can as they take the materials that they have available to them and create a tool of their very own.

This definitely isn’t an option that will work for everybody and if you’re not really sure what you’re doing, you’re probably going to want to stray away from this one, however, when this guy took on making his very own single stage jack that would allow him to lift his car in one motion, he ends up building something that would impress.

If you follow along in the video below, you’ll see the step-by-step that takes pieces of raw iron, cuts them, add mends them into one working and cohesive piece that definitely gets the job done. He probably also managed to save a couple of bucks but I think that the pride that goes into can saying that you made your own tools definitely supersedes any kind of price savings excitement, anyway.
