This was at the scrap yard this morning. Is the dog leg bend in the handle factory or a modification

The handles on both of mine are straight, but a curved one should work just as well. :-)

I didn't those T jacks were tough enough to bend the handle! Must have trying to jack up something MUCH heavier than a T.

I have seen many of them bent, put it in a press, and eye ball it. It will be good as new.

The handle is longer than the jack. I suspect that someone wanted it to lay flat when stored, so bent the handle.
