I sell the blocks with bolts (or "pins") without the stands for $32. You need to drill a 10mm hole through the center of the saddle to attach the bolts. It's not really practical to try to do this with a hand held drill. You need a drill press at a minimum, but, it's easier if you have access to a lathe.

If you send me the inner tubes from your jack stands I can drill the holes for $10 per pair the next time I have the lathe set-up to run a pallet full of jack stand tubes.

Sorry Fred didn't mean to step on your toes. That's a great deal. May pick up the stands and all from you myself.

Drop me a note if you are interested since I don't have the LTP pricing on the website.
Hey Fred you have any of the above left. If so, I would like a set. 90 is for 2 I assume?

Yes. I have a couple of sets of blems. I usually end up with one or two pairs per pallet. I have been doing a lot of work on my website and shopping cart lately and have not gotten around to adding a shopping cart category for "blems" yet. If you want a set, let me know whether the blocks should be bolted on or "pinned" in place. I will need your e-mail address to send you a PayPal invoice.

Thanks for your interest.

When would the next run be if I sent my tubes in?

Unfortunately, I just did a run of the tubes. So it would not be until sometime in May. Do you know how to disassemble the inner and outer tubes?

I am planning to drill the holes in a batch of the inner tubes from the Torin Jack Stands during the week of 10-Jun-2013. If you send me a pair of the tubes from your existing jack stands, I will drill the holes in them and return them for $10/pair. This service is available to customers who are purchasing a set of the jack stand blocks.

You can find my addresses at the Contact Us page of my website.

http://www.reverselogic.us/contact-us.html

If you send the tubes via USPS use the mailing address.
If you send the tubes via UPS use the warehouse address.

Please send me a note before shipping the tubes so that I know to expect them. I will send you a PayPal invoice for the blocks and drilling service. Please specify either the blocks with pins, or blocks with bolts.

Can the two ton OTC aluminum jack stands be drilled to fit the block like the Torin?

Yes. This modification can be made to Torin, OTC, Duralast, Blue Point (Snap-on), or Griot's Garage aluminum stands. Most, but, NOT all of these are made in the same factory. There are probably other brand names as well.

ESCO 10498 jack stands are highly regarded and known for their sturdy design and flat top rubber padded saddle. In about 90 days Reverse Logic will be offering a new slightly smaller version of the 10498 stands. The model number will be 10499.

The 10498 stands have a minimum height of about 13" and a maximum height of about 21". The tripod legs are about 12" apart on the standard 10498 model. There are 5 holes in the solid steel post which are spaced about 50mm apart.

The stands that Reverse Logic will be selling are slightly smaller. The minimum height will be just under 11" and he maximum height will be just under 17". Basically, both the tripod legs and the post are cut down by about 2" each, which translates to a 2" reduction of the minimum height and a 4" reduction of the maximum height. The tripod legs will be about 10" apart on this shortened stand. The other change we are making is adding a second hole in the outer tube for the locking pin. So even though there are only 4 holes in the shortened post, there will be 7 distinct positions corresponding to 25mm increments.

For vehicles with jack points just behind the front wheels and just ahead of the rear wheels, it's not necessary to have a very high jack stand to get the wheels off the ground. The 13" minimum height of the 10498 stands is higher than what's needed on an M3.

Pricing for the new jack stands will be about the same as the current stands since there is relatively little difference in material cost. Perhaps once the volume of the shortened stand increases the pricing will be revisited.

Reverse Logic is also planning to offer an optional post with one of our jack pad blocks attached to the top. This option will work with both the existing 10498 stands and the new 10499 stands. With this option the jack stands can be positioned inside the jack point pocket on BMWs. The block we will use is the same one currently being used with our modified Torin T43004 stands.

Removing allow wheels

I found reverselogic.us' tools invaluable. But you do need a mallet if the alloys are frozen to the hubs.

Suggestion when using a mallet....

When removing your wheels you should determine whether or not the wheel is frozen to the hub BEFORE completely removing all of the lug bolts. I recommend loosening the lug bolts about 3 turns and then if necessary use the mallet to free the wheel from the hub. If you remove all of the lug bolts completely and then start beating on the tire with the mallet, you risk knocking the tire off the hub and damaging the face of the wheel as it falls to the ground. Don't ask me how I know this...

Once the wheel is lose on the hub you can replace one of the bolts with the lug bolt guide tool and then remove the remaining four bolts and the wheel.

Exactly what I did thanks to your very detailed instructions ... and you do need to wire brush the hub and rub a little penetrating oil onto the hub, and only the hub.
Many thanks

Drilling inner tubes of Torin T43004 jack stands

I will be receiving another pallet load of Torin jack stands and drilling 10mm holes in the saddle for mounting the aluminum blocks. We drill the holes using a lathe which is both safe and accurate. If any forum members want to have the saddles on their existing stands drilled to accept the blocks you can send just the inner tubes to me and I will return the tubes along with a set of the blocks. We charge a nominal $10 for drilling a pair of tubes and the blocks are an additional $31.95.

I expect to drill the saddles around the first week of October. Please do not send the entire set of jack stands. Also, please e-mail a note to give me a heads up if you plan to take advantage of this offer.

Can anybody tell me where the front centre jacking point is on an F10?

Thanks
