Homebrew Tranny Cradles for use in Floor Jacks

Anyone have pics of their setup? I figured I could just pull the cup that is in my floor jack and make a cradle of some sort with a solid bar/tube that would fit where the cup receiver is. Thoughts? Comments?

I made one a few years ago-
I found a piece of pipe that fit in the jacks socket,welded it to a 12'x16' piece of 1/4" plate and drilled holes to strap the tranny to the plate.Still a PIA-no lateral movement,no ability to angle tranny up or down.It did work better than lifting it by hand,though.

I've got two 3 1/2 ton Craftsman 2 speed floor jacks

works just fine in both even comes with a snap ring for high speed applications

I have the scissor type too i used that one when I did the flywheel both are just like a sore peter ... can't beat it

I'd trade em both for a car lift and a ROOF

i wanted to get the $200. one but that is a catalog item

glad I was able to help

send pictures
