Been there done that, except I used a bottle jack. Worked great! As I get older I'am always looking for a better easier way to do things. Guess that's because I'm getting weaker as I get older.  LOL !                                                                                                                                                                                 Roger

Me Too

have also used jack as a drill press while drilling overhead

I have used the jack on a wrench or ratchet lots of times. I never thought to use it on a drill. I am getting arthritis in my shoulders and working overhead is often painful. I will definitely be keeping this idea in mind.

 

Thanks, Jim

Ditto to all the above for me as well. Machines are made to use---- necessity is the mother of invention.

Someone mentioned guarantee, that was my only question, is the wrench guaranteed?  Reminds me of my Dad.

Me too Greg.  Reminds me of the 5' pipe on the ratchet and after it broke he returned it for a free replacement!  Those were the days..  I just turn to the flame-wrench to ease things up..
