Miscellaneous Jacks

Database For Vintage and Classic Miscellaneous Vehicle Jacks

This database is for vintage and classic miscellaneous vehicle jacks.  This database is for 'one-off' British car jacks that do not warrant a separate database. Once a specific maker has 10 entries I will spin them off to a dedicated database. Many of the photos and comments have been gleaned from Ebay and other sites.  I would be pleased to add photos and comments from anyone who has information on these jacks.  Contact Me

Please note that this information is accurate to the best of my knowledge, but I make no claims about authority on this subject. Use your own discretion when evaluating the accuracy of the information.

All these jacks are now old.  I would recommend that they are now used only for display purposes.  If one is used for lifting a vehicle, the operator should never put them self underneath the supported area without additional load bearing equipment in place, such as block of wood. Never use bricks for this purpose.

The values are normally taken from auction sites world-wide, but exclude postage.

Request to vendors: Please feel free to use the information from these databases in your adverts. An acknowledgement of the source would be most welcome. However, please do not twist any of the information. Where I say along the lines: 'May be for car X' please make this clear in your advert. An altered statement saying: 'It is for car X' will create false facts and misinformation. If you know for certainty a jack's heritage please contact me so that I can amend the entry. Thank you.

Capacity is 3 tons; Height lowered is 8.25"; Height raised is 17.5"; Base diameter is 6"; Saddle size is 2-3/8" x 3"; Distance centre of screw to end of ratchet is 7.5"
