Yeah, check out the one on the left. Allready has the handles. And it has already lifted a couple rigs off the ground from just turning the handle. Has about 9" of lift from the allthread.
Awesome! Thanks for that link landslide, if shipping is reasonable, it's not worth making my own for that price.
A couple of pics of my homemade jack stands. Sorry for the crappy pic quality, my camera is not working and I need to send it back for work.
Larger jackstand has two large railroad tie plates as the base, 2" square tubing as the main tube, 1 1/2" tube inside that with 1 1/8"x5 acme threaded rod inside that. There is 18" of acme thread inside the stand, so there's lots of travel. I used these to lift the truck at the front bumper while doing the high lift conversion on my Toy.
