Watch: Making an Electric Hydraulic Bottle Jack

This is one video that didn’t force me to turn off the sound due to horrible music, and once we get to the end, where the electric motor starts jacking up the car, it almost seems to be pumping to the beat.

This guy starts with a standard hydraulic jack and uses it and some other stuff he had lying around, including a 12 volt windshield wiper motor, to conjure up an interesting creation.

Imagine a bottle jack that pumps itself! Well, here you have it. Not that it’s particularly practical (especially in light of all the weight it adds to the jack), but it definitely does the job.

If nothing else, it might provide some inspiration for what you can build for yourself around the home or homestead.

In the end, it’s pretty cool.
