    I fully agree, would be fun to scale business to that level. could only imagine as I sold little over 5k units last year and about 9k total since starting this side business about two years ago.

    Greatly appreciate the kind words, I work hard at everything I do and its nice to hear appreciation of that work.

    I only ship thru ebays international shipping service which applies your countries import taxes at purchase, makes the process easier and less chance of lost packages.

    Thanks for making these. I like these better than the round ones. Gives more room to distribute weight more. Also have you though of using a tire like dense rubber on the pads? Figure if they are strong enough to hold a 5000 lb car up without deforming to much, it would work on a jack pad as well. =)

    I do not see the 'free shipping" with 2 or more items on the ebay page. it actually says that shipping is $3 per item more. How do we take advantage of that free shipping?

    Tire like dense rubber = costly and well oddly enough there's a lot of folks that squeak when they walk. My cost point is already at the edge of not making enough profit to continue producing them. I manufacture them myself besides the cutting of the rubber bottoms I have done at a local show.
    The free shipping was part of the july 4th sale.

    Thanks. I like saving where I can. =) To bad there is no way to economically use old tires, because there are literally billions of them.

    Here in the states there is a few companies that use recycled tires for landscaping pellets. I agree on recycling, we recycle everything possible.

    What is a pen? Is that like a stylus? Can I use it with my tablet or computer? :p

    what's the warranty on these? I got the 1st or 2nd generation version and the one of the knubs have peeled off. No, I didn't do anything crazy, just normal usage. Forgot whether its the X or S version, but I do have both still.

    Just DM me a pic of the damaged pad and the purchase receipt and I’ll replace it for you.
