Has anyone ever seen prints for aviation Jack Stands?  Even a few photos to copy would be helpful.  I need to build a set for a new arrival to the hanger (Yak 52).

Thanks!

  Might take a look at the Bingelis article in the Nov 94 SA

I built this jack stand in about 4 hours using off-the-shelf parts available most anywhere.  I am hardly the first person to ever build the basic design but did take the time to document its assembly for the benefit of others.  My iteration requires no welding skills. As a point of reference, I've got three different types of aircraft jacks, all work well and all have their pluses and minuses.  Using this jack design however, has proven by far to be the quickest and easiest way to get an RV wheel off the ground, typically less than 2 or 3 minutes after arriving at the hangar!
