Stacked Blocks Boost Jack's Reach
If you've ever blocked a short hydraulic jack up on a chunk of wood or brick in order to extend its reach, take a look at what we found at one of the smaller exhibits at SIMA.
A company called Centre Diffusion, makes cylindrical stacking jack extension blocks from a high-strength lightweight aluminum alloy. The blocks slide together and lock into place for safety. The slot on the top block accepts the base of the jack, so the jack stays securely in place.
They're being sold in Europe for about $500, which includes a 15-ton jack.
