    Default Storz vehicle jack find

    So, I was down by the sea today at a harbor construction that the german built here in Trondheim during the occupation and found something that I wanted your opinions on --- I've looked around the web and found that "Storz" vehicle jacks like this were indeed in use during ww2 but I have yet to find an actual identical match online and thereby I am missing info on this particular type...

    In short; does anyone recognize this type of jack and, if so, can you say if it's "period" or not? The only marking I've found are the ones showing in the photos saying STORZ LE80

    Following is a few photos of the jack and this dock area it was found -- hope someone can help

    It's a period jack, they haven't made them like that for decades. These days vehicle jacks are pressed steel and normally of a scissor type. Interestingly though, the maker Storz is German, as i've owned both Audi's, Beemer's and a Porsche that have them fitted as standard.

    Ahhh... good to know that it's period at least, thanks for the info! It was just sitting there behind one of the buildings in a kind of grown over area, lots of old crates and stuff from what seems to have been a small demolished building or something just sitting there in a pile --- I have to go back to see if there's anything more of interest soon

    Thanks It's not much but at least it's indicative of more probably having been left there -- I just need to start digging around a bit. Been to that place you told me about as well but my detector ***** so bad that I more or less gave up due to it constantly picking up mineral rich stones etc.... signals everywhere, drove me nuts I'll have to go back there once I have set myself up with a better detector --
