Air Jack Makes Maintenance Easy
Sharpening mower blades and doing other work on lawn mowers got easier after Mike Moore built a hoist out of an old air bumper jack.
  “I bought it from an old filling station and modified it for my shop,” he says.
  He credits James Bowie in Tipton, Iowa, for welding up the extension on the front that securely holds the mower’s front wheels in place when the front end is lifted up. Square tubing slides in and out for different width machines. A safety lock locks the lift in place.
  The $200 he spent to buy and modify the jack was well worth it, Moore says, compared to ratcheting up a manual jack.
  “It is fast, heavy-duty and portable. You can easily roll it where you want it,” he says.
