For my Jabi when having to chnage tyres I use a cheap scissor jack. Work like a charm

Piet die ding is effe swaar vir ons vetgatte om saam te vlieg. Die Jab jack het n paar tweaks nodig....die undercarriage leg het n manier om na buite uit te wyk net as die wiel die grond verlaat......dan donner hy af. :twisted:

Marius

Ek dink ek het dalk verkeerde naam genoem. Die jack wat ek gebruik is klein en lig. Hy pas mooi onder maar mens moet net versigtig dat hy nie af donner nie. Dit is ook een van die goedkoopste jacks. Sal n foto post as ek weer by die hangar is

Stupid question.. For something that weighs the same as a microwave egg-poacher why do you need a jack?
Can't vroutjie just lift the wing so the tyre can be changed? ;)

Fanie from Rustenburg (Garfield here on Avcom) got his dad to make us great jacks.

A cheap hydraulic bottle jack (Midas) to which he has welded an attachment that grips the landing gear just lekker and hold it well in place. One of my treasured tools in the hanger.

Oh yes, and it is quiet as well 8) :wink: :lol:

Will take a pic when I get to the hanger over the weekend.

On this UK Jab builder site:~ http://www.jabiruowner.co.uk/jabtip.html There is a simple, lightweight, and portable jack kit solution.. Andy Hollitt posted:~ This is a simple screwjack built around a 75mm high tensile 10mm bolt, running in a piece of chrom moly tube with top and bottom shoulders welded on. A saddle welded to the head of the bolt fits under the undercarriage leg. Turn the nut and up goes the Jabi! Photo:~ http://www.jabiruowner.co.uk/pict3.jpg

On:~ http://www.recreationalflying.com/threa ... 257/page-1 there is scissor jack example ... Andys@coffs posted:~ The top bit uses the narrowing of the undercarriage leg as it goes down to the wheel to allow an interference fit for lift. Inside the welded shape is carpet to stop leg scratching (Note that in the 1st photo the scissor base is probably at 90 degrees to that shown) photos as shown:~

Make sure whatever you use can get under the leg WITH a flat tyre.
