Hockey Puck Jack Stand Adapter/Padding people, need insight

I've searched and read a lot of the old threads but there isnt much detail on how exactly to convert a hockey puck to a jack stand adapter, just most people mentioning it has been done. The closest info is gordgee's wood adapter + a picture. (or the old pictures were lost/no longer work)

I'm curious from those who have done it using a hockey puck, any instructions on how it was made (tools used, process, what was cut off or how it was shaped, etc)?

and how was it secured/attached/put on so it doesnt slide off/car doesnt fall off of it?

And lastly, for making an adapter in general, is it supposed to be made where the adapter supports the flat part of the chassis, or is it supposed to be made to support just the small tab that sticks out? (see diagram for type A or type B)

thanks for insight and help

To answer that question, just pull out your OEM jack and see where the contact point is.

Definitely Type 'A' so that the verticle body lip is just a guide, not a support.

I tried cutting my hockey pucks, but that didn't work out particularly well... my circular saw would bog down.

I just put the pucks between the jack stands and the frame at the support points... the weight of the car causes them to flex a little - so the pinch weld sort of pushes it's way into the hockey puck naturally. Everything seems nicely protected so I don't think the groove is necessary.

I only bought 1 which I use on my floor jack.

If you need more than one, why don't you make them out of a hard wood like maple or oak? I'm sure your table saw would make short work of wooden blocks.

In another thread here I saw that someone had used wood, but had a problem with it spliting. Maybe a hard wood with the groove cut across the grain would work - but honestly I'm pretty happy with the hockey puck solution. The other thread is here:

thanks for the links and info.

I'm curious if anyone has made an adapter for the jackstands out of a hockey puck? It looks more complex and harder to do than making one for the floor jack, so any experience would help.

I'm using them as a buffer between the stands and frame, but I didn't actually modify them... I just sit them on the jack stand, place it in the correct location, and ease the car down on to the puck by lowering the jack...

Here's a better idea...

get some regular jack stands and a few oem (or similar) jacks and weld the adapter piece of the oem jack to each jack stand .. it will fit perfectly! Or if you can manufacture a few of those adapter pieces and weld them to your jack stands, that's even better.
