One of the great benefits that Makers Local brings to the community is the ability to use privately owned and shared tools. We call these tools “perma loaned” meaning that their owners keep them on site, and anyone who would like to use them can contact their owner to receive guidance before using.
Tonight’s new addition is a hydraulic car jack. It’s easy to use, requires minimal setup, and raises the vehicle evenly and higher than a standard car jack can. This device uses the hydraulics to raise the car, and then a mechanical latch keeps the platforms safely in place, lifting up to 7000 lbs.
If you are interested in using this tool, reach out to us on our Slack.
