label switching is fun. i can relate to that.

I need a new jack, and if you can vouch for it like that, I think I might have to head up there tomorrow.

Does anyone own a set of Big Red jack stands?

I had the opportunity to work with some during some emergency maintenance on miklm's car at a DE last weekend, and I thought they were really well made, and perfect for the paddock area at Barber (where you have to have the jack stand weight evenly distributed). Any feedback on them?

I know the HF racing jacks are fairly well received--but there are a few options now and I'm not sure whats the best option.

I have a coupon for $90 for this:

Or $135 for this (on sale):

Plus I can take off another 15% [coupon] for the second one since it's only on sale and I wouldn't be combining coupons which puts it at around 115.

If you have printable coupons, please share. I'm about to pick up a new jack this weekend, and this would absolutely make my day.

Got a 1-ton folding shop crane (read: engine hoist) from Harbor Freight today with a $68 off coupon - normally $164.99, on sale for $97. Will post some pics and thoughts after i get it assembled this afternoon.

I got that one, and found it was too small to lift my little 4 cylindar motor

The 2 ton was overkill, but it worked great.

Anyone wanna buy a used 2 ton engine hoist? I think im done with it.

How was it too little? I'm about to yank out a 6-cyl/transmission from an E30 325. You have me paranoid now.

Craftsman shop vacs? I need a new smallish shop vac, and the 4 gallon one looks like it's pretty decent. Thoughts or alternative recommendations?
