I wanted one of these extensions for my floor jack-

Wanted a jack extension, didn't want to pay shipping

But, they're made in Denmark and the US distributor doesn't carry them. They said they'd order some but I'd have to pay shipping and it'd take a while.

So, instead I went down to the metal store and bought 3 chunks of metal. Then I took them to a machine shop. Then, I welded them together.

I'm 100% certain I should have paid the shipping and waited :)

However, I have a very cool jack extension now, so next time I have to lift dad's jeep, I'm ready!
