Replacement wheel for Napa floor jack



The friend whose Accord I fixed twice and that still has some of my tools and owes me for the parts I bought for her car lost one of the wheels to my jack. I found caster wheels that looked altogether wrong and then I found the grey one on McMaster-Carr, which seemed much better.

Except, it was exactly the same as the ones that I did not want, and I did not realize how wide it was. The original black wheel is wider at the edges and narrower at the axle, while the new grey one is very wide at the edges and even wider at the axle.

Also, the hole is narrower.

The wheel was $5.49, which seemed reasonable for a $42 jack. Unfortunately, they would not tell me the shipping until after they sent it and it was $8.43. I imagine that they would allow me to return it, as long as I pay the shipping.

So, if I get a longer and narrower bolt I can use the mismatched wheels.

Should I just purchase a new jack? I just bought this one this year!

Thanks everyone!

Did you ask NAPA if they can order a replacement? It might be worth a shot.
