Jacks and Stands Car jacks and stands come in many different types and sizes for the home garage. The rolling floor jack is one of the most popular lifting tools in most home workshops. Most of the roll under typed of jack will lift cars that are 2-4 tons, depending on the rating of the jack. The advantage of using a stand as well as the jack is that once the car is lifted high enough, a car stand can be slid in place and cranked up to support the vehicle. This is excellent for rotating tires, or changing your car’s fluids.
You can utilize your workbench to finish your garage. Insulating and dry walling your garage will help keep it measurably warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. If you have any attic space in your garage, you can put some plywood up there to create a significant amount of available storage space. Then, dry wall the bottom of the trusses and install a hinged access door about 2 and a half feet wide and 6 feet long to get all of your things in and out of your new storage space. You can also protect your garage floor from automotive fluids and winter slush with a floor covering such as paint, epoxy, or garage floor tiles.
A common material for pre-manufactured workbench legs and supports is steel sheet. As we discussed in our previous article "A Handy Guide on Shelving Systems for the Home Garage and Workplace", the thickness of sheet metal is called its gauge and the lower its gauge number is, the thicker the steel is. Steel sheet ranges from about 30 gauge to 8 gauge, with thinner 30+ gauge material called foil and thicker 8 gauge or less material called plate. Typical workbench supports range from around 12 to 16 gauge. Stringers and lower shelves add stability and strength to the legs and allow for heavier loads to be applied. They do this by connecting the legs together below the worktop and forming a rigid structure that helps support itself. Without additional support the workbench legs would easily fold under and collapse when weight is applied. The design may favor stringers alone if the workbench is intended to be used while sitting, allowing for the person’s legs to extend under the worktop. Lower shelves may also be incorporated into the design for storage below the worktop surface, and may be partial or full sized shelves depending on its use. Though load carrying capacities are frequently not listed on workbenches, a general rule of thumb is to use a thicker gauge steel support structure for heavier duty workbench applications.
