Mine is a Sears 3 ton made of solid steel. Feels like it weighs at least 50
pounds - probably more. My dad gave it to me maybe 18 years ago and he had used
it for quite a few years before then. It has grease fittings in a couple of
places, but I don't ever remember adding any grease. It has never given either
of us any trouble. Maybe you should start looking for an old one at garage

Two years ago my kids gave me a Sears Chinaman floor jack, one of the $200
aluminum types. Twelve months later it started leaking and lost most of it's
oil on my garage floor. After much badgering and letters to corporate Sears
finally replaced it, under protest and scolding, with another just like it.
Now, another 12 months has passed and guess what? The second one is also
leaking. I did a little checking and found that I am not the only one with
the problem, in fact it seems that they all leak. Anybody tried to fix one
of these things? Of course, Sears lists all of the repair parts with part
numbers leading one to think they are repairable, but none are available.
Short of finding a successful solution, are there any suggestions for a good
jack. I have found that there is at least one "MADE IN USA" jack made by
Hein-Werner, any experience with them?
