Default Rust Repairs

For the handyman, or the guy that's prepared to "have a go" and get a terrific guide from this video. It is Austrian made (the video) and luckily enough the guy doesn't talk, so there is no language barrier.

What is also remarkable, purely for personal reasons, is the lifting jack he's using. Exactly the same as mine that I acquired thirty five years ago, Made in Denmark, still being used today and the subject of a none too successful attempt to overhaul various components in the linkages etc. a couple of years ago. Maybe I should just take a photo of my unit just to prove my story.I had been told that a jack of equivalent quality would set me back $600.00 nowadays.

N.B. BTW, nice, easy to listen to music. Regards Styria

Interesting that a galvanised body would rust like that. Perhaps an old repair?
Regards,
Brian

Should you want someone to look at your jack, I have a client of mine who is a 'roving' jack repairer.

Tarek, I did look at most of the video and, like all Austrians (other than myself), he never uttered a single word. If he did, it must have been quite late in proceedings. Regards Styria
