Coolest tool you wasted money on?

Selson air jack looked like I might use it often. Turns out use it only for oil changes on my Corvette on lift, since rear has to lifted up to drain all oil out.
$500 wasted for neat product

Its a air bag setup... I bet it gets really small when it's empty...

Jetski.... that is interesting... what's the details and post up some more pics!!! I bet it can hold a crap load of weight and it is probably way lighter than a huge arse hydro jack...

More details please!

Jack made in Australia compact about 30 LBS and well built. Rated for 4500 pounds, my model has low height of about 4 inchs without puck will lift to 19 inchs.
Selson makes other models with more height and weight ratings used for big truck lifting.

You'd have to do a lot of oil changes to get what you paid for it to make it worth it.

Product must sell well, you will find no discounts for jack.
Few have seen on Ebay go for close to new price

I don't think any tool I've ever bought was a waste of money, I needed it at the time or else I wouldn't have bought it

I cant think of one. I dont have money to waste anyway. $3000 in racing bills last month kinda kills and splurging.

Air bags donot hold weight on jack, center section similar to bottle jack. Air bags are used to raise and lower metal support bar in center of jack.
