EARLY MODEL T JACK

Post by Blueabbott » Wed Sep 04, 2019 10:36 pm

A friend came by yesterday with a Ford jack for me. It is manufactured by Buckeye, with the Ford block lettering. Do you know if this would be used on a 1911 model? I am looking for a handle for this jack.

I've found traces of silver paint on mine too.

Thank you, for the information. Still confused if this would have been used on a 1911.

Maybe the question could be; Did the Ford tool kit include a jack in 1911 and if so, what type was it and what did it look like.

If I read the info in the links right, Ford did not include a jack in the tool kit in 1911 and that would be about 1913 style jack.
I know the voices aren't real but damn they have some good ideas! :roll:

Anyone who has one of those Buckeye jacks is darn lucky to have one. I don't care if they used them in 1911 or not! When you have a flat you need a jack! That would certainly be more appropriate than one from Harbor Freight!

Thanks so much for the responses. Guess that I will place this jack under the seat of my 1911 Torpedo, with a home made handle. At least it is different from the normal Model T screw jack.

Dean, I have two handles left from a small run I had done. They are on hold for a friend, but we haven’t made a connection yet, he may only take one. Drop me a line and I’ll send a pic and if it becomes available , you can decide then. Tmorsher@icloud.com
