    Thanks! They worked pretty good especially when loading on the edge of the garage. We had some come lose and roll away, but we were taking our time and just used these awesome toe jacks to reposition them. Would be awesome if they had an articulating head that was magnetic.

    Would you post a good pic of the toe jacks? Please include the data plate.

    It's some where on Interstate 85. Probably just across the NC/VA border.

    Got here positioned into place. Y buddy is going to let me borrow his level and I'll most likely set it on steel plates when I go to level it.pxl_20201122_154557309.jpgpxl_20201122_161455244.mp.jpgpxl_20201122_161522295.jpgpxl_20201122_165143653.jpgpxl_20201122_170126767.jpg

    Thanks for the toe jack picture. I hadn't seen ones like that before. A quick search shows Hilman prices them at $1,564. There are also 5 and 25 ton models.

    You want steel plates under the jack screws. It makes them easier to turn and prevents the screw from digging into the concrete.

    Gbent, when you work for a fortune 500 company, you can afford top shelf tools. Lol!
