Re: Review of a Dannmar D7 lift
Another 4 post lift supplier boasts a "flush jacking platform". I didn't realize how important this would be until I tried jacking up a vehicle to remove a tire on the lift.
Last week I make my own flush sliding platform and I intend to modify the one that came with the lift one of these days.
I used a chunk of 4" channel I got from the scrap yard along with a 16"x16" x 1/4" piece of diamond plate and some scraps of 5/16" thick angle iron to make a single sided jacking platform flush with the runway.
For the next one I think I'll keep the top flat rather than the textured diamond plate surface - it works well keeping the jackstand in place but the floor jacks don't roll on it too smoothly.
Oh yeah, where to keep the floorjacks? The big ones have homes under my toolbox, but the little ones just kept getting in the way when not in use - those of you who've read my other projects may realize I have one whole post with nothing hanging off it. A 28" piece of 3/8" bar stock, a torch, my welder, a 3x2 plate with a hole in it yeilds a double jack hanger that can be bolted to the top plate of the remaining post.

Get a bigger hammer."
