I just picked up this jack at a tool sale. Does anyone know what decade this is from? I have not been able to find it on Google. It uses multiple chains, rather than hydraulics.
Pictures of the Yellow Jack-It
Late 20's early 30's.
Maybe late teens as well.
It's hard to see in the picture but the Yellow Jack-IT logo is still on the handle in the original paint.
Thanks Ed. I would have been happy with 20s, but teens is even better.
Can you tell me where this was advertised?
Baloon Tires says late 20's or later> $36 is a very expensive jack for the 1930's. My 36 Plymouth sold for $600 new.
It came off the page of an old Smiths-Winchester Company catalogue page I saw on Ebay.
