Those are pipe jacks. You can find them at just about any welding store.

I undeleted this, it's silly to delete something just because *you* found it - what about other people who come along looking for the same thing?

be sure to check the load capacity on the ones you buy. A lot of them are only rated to 500 pounds max. When the legs colapse, it spells disaster

Enco has them on sale all the time for about $80/each. They also have free shipping frequently.

I just saw where the local H-F had lift jack stands on sale for $50. I was thinking one could buy a handful of thos eand cut them to whatever height you needed.

I did a search and found Drew had already posted this and at the time, it was only a few pages back. So, I felt a little silly and deleted this thread. Wouldn't want anybody telling me to "try searching, noOb"

Any way, it's always good to get more info on them.

Beware of dealings with Greg Smith equipment. There are many stories of the poor quality of the merchandise and poorer quality of the customer service when the poor quality is discovered.

The policy of Greg Smith Equipment is that the customer is NOT always right. They have a store not too far away, I won't consider buying from them ever again. Especially a jack.

That's a good price. rated at 2500lbs each for 59.99. We used to use that specific brand all the time for supporting vehicles, chassis, and all sorts of other random things.

Go to your local United Rentals.

If they have 'em in stock you can usually haggle them down to $55 each.

I use the hell out those things, since I work on alot of tall trucks.

28" - 53" with 2500 lb limit for $68.89 (free shipping I think)

20" - 38" with 2500 lb limit for $66.89

The guy that owns the store is a buddy of mine and will absolutely take great care of you. I just bought four of the smaller ones myself. They're great for leveling an axle or a chassis.

LOVE the Ridgid brand stands - they have a 2500lbs rating each and you can easily raise and lower the jacks with a truck on them by hand. Lifting the front of a 78' Bronco was a breeze, the 74' was even easier.

Yup. I'm not quite cool enough to have a hydraulic lift, but these are the poor man's alternative.

I wanted a bunch of these, but couldn't pony up the $400 on jack stands (I wanted 6 of them)

I decided to build my own. I setup a jig on my welding table and built 8 in an afternoon. I used acme threaded rod and nuts from Enco. It was about $6 per stand worth of supplies between acme rod and angle iron.

If you only want a couple I'd buy them, if you're looking for a bunch, I'd tool up and build some. I built 8 and really wish I'd done 12 now.

funny how things are in life,my father had a shop along time ago and we made jack stands back then they were mainly used for pipe welding.the first pic is the sumner pipe stand thats the big dog company!anway we make them for a few years and we end up making them for ridgid tool company.so we did that for a few years but they wanted a closer shiper.so i know the stands well , weld a 100 a day and you got paid for a full day.they come in handy for lots of things!even clay target throwers

I bought 4 of these last year
if you find my post in here it will tell you where, I can't remember but they were like $150 free shipping all 4 !!!!!!!!

but they are tall, I can use them now that I have a rig on 47s, but I have to strap the suspension links to frame or I get too much droop, would need to be 10 feet in the air
