I have the "old style"? Bal jacks that the end of the crank handle looks like a 3/8 male end. I haven't found any kind of drill adapter for them. Anyone know where I could find one? And there is about a 4 in. long tube it has to fit into

What about one of those big Gator Grip sockets?

If you have the old style with the hole, instead of the hex nut end, I used a 1/4" Allen wrench in my drill to raise and lower them.

I just went out and looked at it again. The gatorgrip won't work its female at the jack. The handle end is square like a ratchet extension.

Looks like you could buy an extension (3/8, 1/2 whatever) and cut the tail off, then chuck it into your drill. Would that not work?

Ya if it will fit in the chuck. Don't have drill and extension handy at the moment hopefully it will fit in the chuck and won't have to buy a bigger drill. Thanks.

I started out using a 19.2v screw gun but the twisting hurt my wrists then I bought a 24v impact no more twisting work lot better than my screw gun
