Unless the jack is a really expensive one, or if it has sentimental 
value, just give it away and buy a new one. Harbor Freight and Northern 
Tool can probably fix you up for half what repairing the jack would 

And I don't care WHOSE name is on it; I don't go under the car until 
the jack stands are in place.
