Uses for your old tongue jack

I replaced my tongue jack with an electric one. What do you do with the old manual jack? Mine has set in the corner of garage (gotta be something it's good for). I finally did. Based on an idea in Wood Magazine, I built a clamp for assembling and gluing the segmented wooden bowls I like to make on my lathe.

That's pretty nifty, if not downright cool.

That is pretty awesome "nowait"
Uses for your old tongue jack. That talent is way outside of my reach. Not to railroad your talent but the title 'Uses for your old tongue jack" are there any other idea's out there. Looking at what you have done I could use my old one in that fashion but for a can crusher..l
