That's right, I ordered a pair. Just two, not four... May pick up two more when Im out there later in the year.

They are a good amount larger than I had thought. Maybe I misjudged by the photos. Still, they are very solid, not that heavy, and its nice that they will nest. I just bought flat tops so that I can adapt with hockey pucks and anything else I need (like square blocks for BMWs, etc.)

Some pictures:





















My plan is to use the reverse logic square adapters for cars that need them, and if/when I do pinch welds, Ill identify how to best support them.

At 4000# each, I wonder if I could use ONE of them under the center brace on the front of the car and have good access. Typically Id never say to use one support, but given the width of the top pad, and assuming the rear wheels are on the ground, it may be stable.

Don't think Id ever do that though... Just thinking out loud... the contact area is HUGE!

Hello, They're news to me. Best of luck with them.
Looking cast, the first thought I had was of them cracking.

"May pick up two more when Im out there later in the year."
Did you go to the manufacturer?

How much were they? Kira

We had discussed them previously, including some input from the company...

Id imagine the risers on most ratcheting/pin stands are cast with a welded steel frame. Those cast parts could crack just as easily.

For pinch welds i don't see why you could not use a piece of oak with a saw cut. Or even a section of rubber from a really large truck tire. Make a cut equal to width and depth of the pinch weld and place it on top of the jack point. This would be easy to make ( I'd make the line run against the grain). They show adapters on the website for pinch welds, i did not look at the cost of them.
