Been wanting a pole saw for a few years now.  Rented a Stihl commercial a couple times but they are heavy and with my bad shoulders the saw sat a lot more then it was used.  Finally bought a small Poulan Pro package with line trimmer for considerable less than a Stihl.  I know the quality is not there but I can handle this one.  Used it yesterday a trim up a Mulberry bush growing up inside a windmill.  Worked great and will  get some use out of this one.

Hi All,

Happy Memorial Day!

Thank you and a Big Salute to all the Veterans who have fought and served to keep our Country the U.S.A. free.

 

 

What is this tool?

We see them at sales and they always sell them separately from the box lot.

They must be something special.

Thank You,

Candy T. and Family

 

 

I found out what it was... a Scythe Anvil.

My neighbor just gave me this bumper jack for sharpening the blades on his tractor. It works, just needs the moving parts oiled up from sitting. I’m thinking about making a bracket or something for lifting tractors.

Thank you for sharing the picture of what looks similar to an old friend of mine.  Have a very similar model in my dads shop that while not as clean and pretty still works.  I think they were made in the late 1950's / early 1960's and for the most part worked very well when cars had bumpers that were made for lifting the vehicle up with.  ON the jack we have there are packings around the plunger and release lever shafts that can be snugged up if they leak oil at those locations.  Looks like someone may have modified the actual brackets that contact the bottom of the bumper on yours - not sure. 

 

My dad made an adaptor that attached to the jack so that it could be used as a transmission jack after he got a used hoist in the 1970's.  Good luck with the jack.

I have one of those sitting in my garage that I have had for years but havent used much/if any/ since I got a 2 post lift that I can pick up a whole car at once with... 

I think mine was a "company issued" service tool for those that had old Standard Oil stations/service centers as mine is branded "atlas" and teh design of the label ties in with old Standard oil stuff.... Id bet it's the same exact thing as you pictured. also built by Hein Werner.

I needed to replace the roof panels on my metal garden shed which requires a lot of time up on a step ladder.  I bought this cordless drill because it was small and lightweight so I could carry it in my tool belt.  Worked great for removing the scores of bolts and screws to take out the old panels and then having to do it all over again to bolt and screw in the new panels.

The drill can be rotated to be used in a straight configuration.

Was using the bumper jack last week that my dad had for years and made an adaptor for about 50 years ago - it was hard to roll on the floor so today I took some time and lubricated the wheels and the rollers which make things work a lot smoother.  Decided to take some pictures of it at the same time as it appears to be an older version of the Model 55 Hein Werner than the one you have.  I believe my dad would have got this back in the early 1960's - it may have been used at the time.  Seen lots of use during the 1960's lifting vehicles and farm equipment.  Once my dad got a hoist and with the bumpers on the majority of vehicles no longer designed for lifting around 1970 the jack was not used much anymore.  One day he decided to make up the adaptor out of some pipe and U channel so he could use it when installing transmissions in cars on the hoist - he already had a 12" round plate with a stub shaft in the centre that he used with a floor jack when working on school bus transmissions so he used it with the adaptor.  I have since made up an adjustable head for transmissions that allows a transmission to be tilted side to side and front to back that works a little better than the flat plate.  The jack also comes in handy when working with gas tanks, rear axles and other tasks when working with a vehicle on the hoist.  I last used it with the lower control arm fixture I made to replace the front coil springs on a 1980's full size GM car which I have included a couple of pictures of as well.  

The pictures may help you or some one else if they have this style of jack and want to make it more useful.

I was using my jack last night to lift my snowmobile so I could work on rebuilding the rear suspension. Works perfect for lifting it from the front bumper, the rear bumper is too narrow though. I still have to make some adapters, I have some ideas, just haven’t had time to make anything up yet. Here’s a few pictures:
