Remembered to download camera at last. So here is the first thing. Put a new jack on an equipment trailer.
This is what was there with someones idea of a battery box for the old electric brakes. (Has been converted to surge brakes).

I wanted to try out the TIG setup on the 140ST, but with only 120V it wasn't quite up to the task for the thick stuff.

Switched to stick and 6011 and it was all good. Just some stitch welds every few inches, to keep the heat out of the jack and make it easier to cut off after it gets destroyed. Actually this will be the second one of these I have used and so far they are holding up much better than anything else has. HF drop leg 3500 lb. model. Not sure it would really lift 3500, at least more than once. But it does ok for this and is much nicer than a top crank.

A little cold galvanizing primer to hold it until a someday paint job.
