Default What new tools have you got recently?

Just a place to show off and talk about the tools you recently bought/acquired.

I sharpened the blades on my neighbors tractor, and he gave me this old bumper jack as payment. It works, but needs the moving parts oiled up from sitting. I’m going to make a bracket to go on it for lifting tractors.

From the people that brought you Covid-19 by way of Dayton/granger, this arrived today.
it made quick work of some beef jerky I had and my fast thinking foxhound/great dane appreciated it falling on the ground!
I have to find something more challenging to cut now.

That is an "oldie"and a goodie, I'd be guessing 1950's, remember the one I used to borrow from my wife's dad back in the mid 60's
It went to his son after he passed, but son is gone now, as is the bumpers that vehicles had to lift under.
handy thing it is!

We have 2x 3 ton bumper pneumatic jacks. We still get them to work on a lot of cars with plastic bumpers.. We also have used one on either side to lift cars from the pinch welds if the 2 post lift was occupied and we needed to pick up another car.

Ya, I have a pneumatic one now also it is an oldie too, but I liked the hydraulic one better, I never liked lifting on the bumpers, always preferred the
Frame, or stubs or bumper brackets in that order.
I really dislike lifting on the pinch welds, but that is how it's done today.
Made a set of pinch weld pads for my daughter New Camaro, but still prefer a solid lifting point.
Aw well move ahead or backslide.

That's a rather neat looking jack, can't say I have ever seen one. If I had more room in the shop I'd love to have something like that for lifting lawnmowers. I have a small one that was given to me, but its a deathtrap for a "normal" Cadet. Tried lifting my 1811--it cleared it about 2" before literally shooting the jack out the front at me. Just bad physics on its design, and too wimpy to do the job. Not sure How I even feel about it on the "box store" series mowers some of the family has.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
