A useful attachment for a hydraulic jack that allows you to jack up bedside tables, cabinets, sofas, etc. Good day, dear homemade friends. In today's article, I will try to describe and show you in detail how to make homemade products that are quite useful in the household. This homemade product can very often be needed both at home and in the garage, and in many other places. And today we will assemble a tool that can be used to lift, such things as a refrigerator, wardrobe, chest of drawers, bed, etc. To be more precise, the attachment on the hydraulic jack allows us to do these actions. It often happens that you need to move a cabinet by driving some low-profile cart under it, but for this you need to raise it, and doing this alone is not an easy task. Or, for example, something falls under the refrigerator or sofa, and the size of your hand does not allow you to get this thing, by slightly lifting this refrigerator or sofa, you can easily get the thing rolled under it. Well, well, I think you shouldn't delay with a long preface, let's go.
For this low-profile lift we need the following, namely:
– A piece of thick metal strip
– Metal corner
– A small piece of a shaped metal pipe with a square section
– Screws
From the tools we also need the following:
– Grinder
– Cutting and grinding discs for grinder < br> – Ruler
– Marker
– Construction corner
– Drilling machine or conventional drill
– A set of drills of the required diameter
– Countersink
– Some kind of lubricating oil
– Welding machine
– All necessary accessories for working with a welding machine
– Hammer
– Tap (for cutting internal thread)
– Kerner
Manufacturing of a low-profile lift:
The first step is to deal with the most important part of this homemade product, and it is not difficult to guess that the main and main part of this homemade product is a hydraulic jack. If you have a simple vertical hydraulic jack, then you are very lucky, and if you do not have one and there is a desire to purchase such a jack, then it is worth noting here that if you want to use the jack only for jacking, refrigerators and cabinets, then you will be enough an inexpensive jack, since in general hydraulic jacks are quite lifting guys.

At this stage, we need to take a thick metal strip. This part of the homemade product will be subjected to high loads that will bend it. Therefore, if you do not want the object you are lifting to jump off the jack and fall, you need to use some thick metal, at least 5 mm thick. From this strip you need to saw off a segment, the length of this segment should be slightly less than the height of the jack. We measure the jack and measure a segment of the same length on the strip, 1-2 cm less than the length of the jack.

Go ahead, now we need to take some kind of metal corner, for greater reliability of the structure, use the corner as thick and wide as possible, again so that the object you are lifting does not accidentally jump off the jack. From the corner you have chosen, you need to saw off a segment of a long metal strip equal to the width of the previously sawn-off metal strip.

These holes will serve as fastening holes for us, thanks to which this corner will be fastened. To do this, take a marker and leave marks in the places indicated in the photo, then for an easier initial setting of the drill using a center punch and a hammer, it is necessary to leave serifs (holes). And accordingly we drill through holes using a drill or drilling machine. For neatness and a tighter fit of the workpiece, countersink the drilled holes on both sides. We will fix this corner to the metal strip cut out at the beginning, and for this we need to duplicate a pair of mounting holes directly on the metal strip itself.

To do this, we apply a corner to the metal strip, at the very edge, just as shown in the photo below. Take a marker and leave marks for these very holes. And, in order to install the drill in the right place, so as not to accidentally displace the holes, we leave notches (holes) with a center punch and a hammer, just as we did earlier with a corner. We hold the strip in a vice and carefully drill through holes with the same drill as we drilled the holes in the corner.

Also, do not forget to cross the drilled holes.

Different jacks have different legs, and they have different sizes and, accordingly, different shapes. The author of homemade products for his jack did the following, namely. I took a metal pipe with a square cross-section and sawed off a length of about one centimeter from it, then welded it from the inside of the corner, on the side in which we did not make any through holes.

To do this, we saw off exactly the same piece of metal corner that we saw off earlier for the manufacture of the part attached to the jack foot.

To do this, mark the places with a marker and use a center punch with a hammer to leave serifs (holes), drill through holes according to the marks and serifs left. The drilled holes must be bored on both sides for a more snug fit of both blanks to each other.

Last time, holes were drilled from the edge of the metal strip, this time it is advisable to make holes not only from the edge, but better over the entire area of ​​this strip. This is necessary to expand the possibilities of homemade products, thanks to such a number of holes, you can adjust the height of this foot and thereby adjust to the size of the object being lifted. We apply a corner and mark the places for drilling.

As you already understood, it is necessary to drill a lot of holes, and the metal in which we drill these very holes is quite thick. Therefore, in order to prevent your expensive drill from breaking down quickly, I recommend using some kind of lubricating oil when drilling such objects.
