Photos of my car scissor jack shooting rest

Recommended Posts

Bought the jack from a local scrap yard for  $6 got it home and I hit it with some brake clean.  the base is scrap 7/8 plywood, drilled four holes in jack base to screw the wood base on with 1 inch deck screws . I  cut the wood for the top just thin enough so I would have tap it in for a tight fit , I then drilled one  hole on each side of jack top and used deck screws to hold that . Sprayed it with some black paint .Then added the  bag, it’s from a little company in P.A. Called  Protektor they make really nice leather rest bags .. Wanted to do two but they only had this one scissor jack that was decent.
