Guys I went to my first boot sale today and picked up the dark Jack in the pics (SJ60) and a Ford spanner (T5893), I already had the other jack in my garage (Walker Racine NO 361 & N172).
Can anybody tell me anything about these?
Thanks

Not T. Here are a couple of pictures showing the standard Model T jack that came with the car until the last few years.




The only difference between these two is paint.

I don't have a picture of the pressed steel jack that came with the last T's. Maybe somebody will post one.

Information from 1922 from Beckley Ralston Co. showing jacks.

Steve, so I can hunt better next time what is the branding on those jacks?
Also is there any branding on the later model T ones that I should look for?
George were any of these "Beckley Ralston Co" jacks supplied with T's?
Thanks

The correct heavy duty jack for a TT is this one:



Marked "Gilbert Hunt Co. / Walla Walla, Wash.

Any self respecting TT owner needs to be ready to do some
railroad track work.

The lawn mower is also T-correct, as is the poletop finial and
the roll of barbed wire. :-)

I do not know the history of Ford accessories. I have read where Ford would issue a company statement about using only Ford products with his car. I would hazard to guess that the jacks presented in the jack advert were manufactured by various manufactures who may have been sub-suppliers for the company. Those jacks with the Ford name on them may be best answered by some with more experience with Ford accessories and tools.

Alright, I am going to show some stupidity here- can someone post a video how to use the standard 1909-1926 screw-type jack? It kinda spooks me and I want to learn how to use them.

Thanks!!
Jim
