Hey,


I have been checking to find a 50-ton jack for using as a barrel press. I have looked locally with NO LUCK! So I figured I would turn to this board and see if any of you know where I can find one that is reasonably priced....the key word being reasonably. Alaska Industrial Hardware has one for $274.00, but online Home Depot had the same jack for $116.00, but it will not ship to Alaska.

So I am still looking.

Well I found a solution. My brother-in-law can pick up the jack at the Home Depot in the lower 48 and then ship it via flat-rate priority mail shipping (it only weights 68 pounds) for about $11.00. WOOHOO..no wonder the post office is broke!

Also might check out forklift suppliers.
