Mechanical Friction Jack
"Our mechanical æfriction jack' provides up to 3,000 lbs. of mechanical muscle to push or pull things into place. It was originally developed for auto body repairmen to push or pull body components back into line. However, it has also become popular with plant maintenance technicians, builders, pipe fitters, welders, remodeling contractors and others who find it to be a simpler, easier to use and less expensive alternative to heavier and more complicated hydraulic positioning devices.
  "It consists of a 55-in. long, 3/4-in. dia. steel rod available with five hardened friction plates. The plates provide secure locking in an infinite number of positions to either push or pull. To use the unit, you simply depress the locking tabs to slide the rod into position and then use the jack handle to apply exactly the pressure needed to accomplish the job. It can exert up to 3,000 lbs. of push/pull power.
  "We also offer a full range of chains, hooks, clamps and other accessories for further versatility."
