    UUUHHHH....If its a Chraftsman and it stopped working, take it back. A lot of times they wont warranty bigger things like that but the should give you money off a new one.

    <font color="green"> My Dad has this one, it's real nice. $400 is alot of money for a jack IMHO, my $100 one works great. </font color>

    Check your local pawn shops. My wife is the Manager of a pawn shop. I get some seriously smoking deals on stuff. You would be surprised at some of the quality stuff that people pawn. 99% of my tools have been purchased at her pawn shop. (Of course I get it at 50% off, which helps.)

    Never pay "sticker price" at a pawn shop. Most stores will take 20-30% less than the marked price.
