    Fortunately I’d bought the aluminum ones... thankfully they’re not recalled.

    When I get home, I will be checking a set I have.

    I have one recalled set, one not recalled. I've ordered new ones , not HF, and depending on
    what they are giving ( supposed "retail" value) I may just keep them for painting purposes.
    I don't go under a car when doing that and they do have a nice height.

    Steve,

    If you keep them, please make sure they don't wind up in someone else's unsuspecting hands years from now ...

    Don't worry Mike, I replace these things every 5 years or so, just because!

    Cheers!

    Update, told my Wife my plans for the recalled stands and got a definitive NO.
    Guess they're going back!

    That is a better response from your wife than an inquiry about upping your life insurance.

    Turns out the ones I have are not on the recall.

    Here’s the problem HF is experiencing. Bad one on the top, good one on the bottom. I think you can see the problem.

    I am going to get a set of these Esco jack stands. They also make a version of them with a flat rubber cushioned top. I like the locking pins to hold them in place. They are highly rated. Esco jack stand.JPG

    The ESCO's are really nice, a bit pricey though. I bought a set that are a bit more conventional
    but also have the locking pin. I think those are important!
