Quite awhile back I saw a repair tutorial for those cheap little chinese floor jack. I don't remember if it was on this web site. I think it was on youtube. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

That's it! My jack is cheaper than that, though (the pressure release is separate from the handle). I guess it's a throwaway.

Since "Lincoln" went out of business, and I broke mine, had a heck of a time finding parts, then I learned they were bought out by a chinease (or somebody) business, I finally found parts locally...but it cost me an arm and a leg to get the UV joint that also pumps up the ram. About $40, not that much considering I got my floor jack back. Its my go-to jack in the shop.

I've had my USA made Blackhawk jack, for about 25 years now. (even the handle is 1/8" wall steel tube, in one piece)

I bought it from McKerlieMillen new (now bought out by CarQuest) - it was on sale as new production was going to China - in the mid '80's.
Who knew than, that most ever thing would be made oversea. How sad !!

Good video link there DJ in WV.

If you folks who have American jacks (all kinds) repaired or a source for parts ,then use Tools and Hydraulics in Chattanooga, Tenn. (423- 622-8282) Don't know if they fix Chinese jacks but they have kits for American ones or will repair yours in their shop. I have had good luck with my Walker, Hein Werner and an old US made Craftsman . Nice folks to deal with.

Experience here in Australia is that most Chinese made floor jacks for non commercial use are 'throw aways' and those that survive have mostly been recalled due to hydraulics failure towards max lift. A 1400 kg (about 3000 lb) floor jack sells here for about AUD$50 so if you get a good one, lucky, if not, return it.
