My best pair of jacks was made for me by Shorty Finley out of a leaf Spring on an old chevy. Those sadly vanished but they were light and held wax well.
I had a job at one point about 20 years back doing 800 weights and heavy vases for Washington Mutual. The weights were large and involved a hard jacking down off the punty. I wore a groove in the Moores and replaced them with Cutting Edge which have not worn at all. Of all of them, I really miss the one's Shorty made but a lot of that is probably sentimental.
