Home Made Car Lift.




What do you think about this video?

rpeek: That's cool! Good job!

mikefromspace: Looks like that leg would get in the way of a transmission jack.

MendingThings: Thanks

Chita Jing: Very interesting project. Have you considered building wooden jack stand type units? A few stacked 4x4s are STRONG. Bolting them into smaller, stackable units and moving them under the car as you lift it - might that be a viable solution to problems with the lift? If you continually put higher towers of wood under four lift points, they could hold it up if anything happened, couldn't they?

MendingThings: I will try to get a new video updated.

Daniel Crane: You've inspired me, sir. I will make my own. Can you upload a video with it being used?

Begbucks: Good design. I just would add some metal reinforcing brackets (on the sides & bottom much like a 1/4" 2X8 channel iron secured via 6 or 8 grade 8 bolts each to the joists for extra support.

JRod350: Nice

Chadd Chevrolet: I wouldn't work under it. It'd need more safety devices for my well being. I like the thought and what you did with what you had. Cool idea, but if you'd just put a lil bit away and save you can get a nice two pole lift from bendpak for like two grand and not have to worry about jack stands or anything placed under the wheels as you lift like you were raising a house. Cool how you made it work tho.

ty holmes: B-o-l-t. Bolt...

George Grant: Those welds look like a dogs breakfast !

nflfreak4341: very cool.. but me personally i wouldnt get under that.. but its still cool to see what people can make.. it does look sturdy...
