The only way that would be useful would be to adjust the upper hook under something, push the handle down, to raise the item, stick a block under it, raise the handle, readjust the hook, push the handle down, insert a block, etc, etc, etc. ohwell Wouldn't work for a vehicle, because the suspension probably would relax before the tire got off the ground to block it up. I guess you could block it under the frame or bumper.

I got an answer from the craigslist ad. He has no clue either, but it did belong to his grandfather.

My vote is it's a Buckboard/Wagon Jack.

How tall is it?

Looks like the lifting paw ratchets up and down the cogged teeth on the shaft, right?

It's about 26-27" tall. The pawl? slides up and down, it sits on the teeth. The handle lifts it about 4 inches or so.

Definitely a specialty jack for a specific application. Doesn’t appear very heavy duty.

Any chance you could pm the link to me? I am in northern CA and that would look cool in my garage thumbs_up


I'll try anything twice in case I did it wrong the first time.

figured it out
it's just one of many early carriage jacks, used for holding them up for wheel service, that's why it starts so high off the ground and it not very strong, do not lift heavy loads and never trust it with more than your friends foot.
once you know what to look for they are not difficult to find

hi Twin Jimmys,
the link i posted earlier is gone now, i can't find the post on craigslist either, but i found another one in 1 minute knowing what to look for, i'll PM you that one, it's a bit more pricey but it's in better shape.
