George Radion in Australia has a database on Australian-made Jacks

This page is for unidentified vehicle car jacks.  Anyone who has any information about the jacks shown, the manufacturer and the vehicles that used them please contact me.

Request to vendors: Please feel free to use the information from these databases in your adverts. An acknowledgement of the source would be most welcome. However, please do not twist any of the information. Where I say along the lines: 'May be for car X' please make this clear in your advert. An altered statement saying: 'It is for car X' will create false facts and misinformation. If you know for certainty a jack's heritage please contact me so that I can amend the entry. Thank you.
