In the warehouse where I office during the day, my boss has a collection
of about 55 collector cars. All but a few of them never move, except
down. At any given time 1/3 of them have a flat tire. So we want to get
the weight off the tires. We looked at jackstands, including the nice
sleek ones that are coming out. But those are a bit expensive when you
are looking at 200 or so.
I know that car museums use a more specialized stand that just
supports the weight at the ball joint, with the tire touching the ground
in it's normal position. That's what we really need. Is there a source
for those, or are they custom-made?
Alternately is there anyone in the DFW area who would like to bid
on 200 simple stands ? All we really need is a 6" steel plate with a
12" pice of heavy-wall 2" square tubing welded to the center. We can cut
them to fit the individual cars with a chopsaw.
Other suggestions welcome
