Repairing a non-leaking floor jack

I've got a floor jack that doesn't leak any fluid, but it will only lift the car a couple inches. I keep pumping but it goes no higher? It used to work just fine.

Any ideas/suggestions?

Thanks,...

HotinOKC,

You are correct, if the tile was applied over unpainted drywall. Every backsplash I've seen was applied over a painted wall, which makes it easier to pull the old tile off.

It should be just fine to paint. You may have some mastic or grout left on the wall. You'll have to scrape that off. And if there are any low spots, dimples, etc., you'll have to fill and sand those....

My run was too long so I made my own reducer. You could use a 2x4 and shave it down to shape with a table saw and router. It takes a little work, but it's a source of pride.

I really like Goo Gone for greasy cleanup. You should be able to find it at Walgreens (or other drugstore), definitely at Home Depot or Lowe's.

You could break off a toothpick or two in the hole to give the screw something to bite into, and add some epoxy in the hole.

It kind of sounds like my drawers. A simple fix would be to attach 1x1 cleats inside the cabinet on each side for the drawer to slide on.

Same thing. Floating the floor is filling in the low spots with concrete and smoothing them out with a float, which is like a trowel. If you can use self-leveling concrete, it sounds like a lot of...

I've never looked at it this way, but Wirepuller38's saying the same thing I did, only simpler. Takes a little spatial awareness, though.

Wirepuller38, thanks for helping me think outside my box!

Mesh tape

Howdy,

If you're going to use mud and tape, I recommend using the mesh tape. It won't re-crack anywhere near as easily as paper tape.
