Any new ideas on a home made pinch weld adapter for floor Jacks.

Looking for pictures of any home made adapters.

I have read the old posting and seen the pictures.

Want it to be able to lift from the side centered to rotate tires.

Don't know if you caught it in your reading. . .

But some have used a small length of unistrut with some slit rubber hose as a grommet over the edges.

A welded stud or large bolt through the center of it would keep it centered in the floor jack.

I simply bought a $10 "hockey puck" type adapter. For me though, the groove is too shallow and I will have to mill it out a 1/4" or so. For $10, it seemed simple enough.
