Jack Stand Jack
After years of working on equipment, Alistair Bray was frustrated that the best place to put a jack stand after jacking up a vehicle was also the best place to put the jack. He couldn’t find a combination jack stand/jack on the market so he decided to build his own.
    He mounted a low-profile bottle jack inside a jack stand after adding a metal plate to the bottom of the stand. The jack pushes up through the center of the stand and once the correct height is reached, a pin is inserted just like on a conventional jack stand. Then the jack is lowered back down so the weight of the machine is on the safety pin.
