No. 670

No. 670 Hardwood Plank Jack

This jack has a threaded pushrod that produces all the power of dog-and-ratchet jacks, but without the backlash or dog breakage problems. With every turn of the ratcheting handle, this jack pushes then holds and does not give. It adjusts between the wall and the last plank quickly by pushing down on the oversized handle. Push plate is reversible for when sheetrock does not go all the way to the floor or for working very close to the wall. Fastens down for use in the middle of the room using holes in the base. Provides up to 2000 lbs. of pushing force to move planks as necessary. Net weight: 8.7 lbs.

No. 557

No. 557 Hardwood Pry Bar

This specialized bar for wedging bowed planks into position has a curve-shaped end with a sharp point. Place the curve-shaped end against a bowed board and hammer on the opposite end. As the sharp point on the curve-shaped end is driven downwards into the subfloor, a wedging action is created that forces the bowed board into place, eliminating the joint gap. The sharp point penetrates wood subfloors cleanly. The long eleven inch handle provides good leverage when necessary. Net weight: .90 lb.
