1/6th working engine hoist
I picked up this nifty cast-aluminum engine hoist with working hydralics at a Harbor Freight store. I've never seen it in their catalog or web page(though they have listed the 1/6th jack stands, mini-floor jack and 1/5th tool cart). I think it cost me about $15, which was shockingly cheap (the floor jack is closer to $30). It didn't come with a hook. Instead, there's a metal weight shaped like a tiny engine. I used some hardware store chain and an "S" hook from the same source to hook up my Lincoln Mint 1/6th Ford V-8. Seen here with a GI Joe Collector's Club "Foreign Adventurer" for scale.
