Metal Garage


I got the Garage jacked up and and had the ground graded. I had gravel put down for now. I am saving for concrete. The jacking was a killer. I left the anchors in and jacked up the garage. It broke three car scissor jacks before I got it up. I was thinking about when I am ready for concrete raising the anchors . They are a piece of re-barb with a nut welded on them they are about two foot long. What is the best way to raise them up?

Ayuh,.... Use Hydraulic jacks, 'n just extend the anchors, rather than raisin' 'em...
