Why lift a car when you can tilt it?
Eastwood's catalog is chock-full of tools that look awesome, and yet, I have no idea how to use them. Their Tilt-A-Car unit is pretty self-evident. It attaches with the lugs and one side has a radius. You pop your 3/8" driver drill on the lift screw, and it's bottoms up. This unit would have made repairing the rust-tastic rockers and rear quarters on my Volvo 245 a cinch. It's about half the price of a lift – not counting the installation cost, and it seems more useful on a fully assembled car than a rotisserie is.
Thanks for the tip, Keith!
