Just a question In clearing out the garage I have found 9 Model T jacks, are they worth anything?, or are they a dime a dozen. These are 1920 to 27. What to do. Thanks Colin
I'm going out to the farm today and I will take pictures,Dads garage is 16 cars mine is 2 I am over flowing here,with stuff, I think I'm going to open a post office just to save time. Cheers Colin
The screw jacks are not rare, but should be worth selling. Why not take good pictures and put them on eBay? I suspect they would bring more one at a time rather than as a group.
I've seen 'em priced from $15 to $90...depends on who's selling 'em that thinks they're worth something vs. the guy that wants one bad enough I guess.
I am looking for one.
Appearance isn't important. I'm more interested in functionality
Scott Hills just listed a couple in the classifieds - shipping might be less expensive from Oregon compared to Canada ?
I'd be willing to take one off your hands if I don't find a reasonable one in Marietta this weekend. Same as Don. I can make it look pretty as long as it's functional.
If they made 16 million Model T's, didn't they make 16 million jacks? And, like tools, if the car got scrapped or totaled or turned into a Speedster or doodlebug, did the jacks survive to live another day?
There has got to be a reason why, when cleaning out the garage, you found 7 jacks, but not 7 Model T's. If there is a local flea market or swap meet, you might net more for them as opposed to paying UPS, Fed/Ex or DHL $40 to ship a $20 jack.
Everyone should have five Model T Ford jacks.
One in the car.
Four on the shelf to use if you like to keep the tires off the floor during long term storage.
I carry a Ford jack, but for holding the tires up off the floor I use four of these:
Years ago, nobody wanted tiresaver jacks and you couldn't give them away.
In recent years they have become very popular and the price has gone way up. Also, it can be difficult to find a matched set, especially smaller ones that are better suited for Model Ts.
However, Model T screw jacks - factory and aftermarket - are a dime a dozen.
