Hydraulic Jack is used to lift all types of loads. It is one of the good ideas for a Science Project. So, in the following article, we will discuss how to make a hydraulic jack. Our main aim is to make a cost-efficient and reliable hydraulic jack.
It is always suggested to be prepared with supplies before preparing the hydraulic jack. So, let us look at it. They are as follows:
- Sixteen Strong Cardboard
- Medical Pipe
- Medical Pipe Connector
- Bamboo Sticks or Sausage Sticks
- Two Syringes
- Sharp Knife
- Metal Scale
Steps To Make Hydraulic Jack For Science Project
Step 1: The initial step is to start dividing each cardboard into three points.

Step 4: The next step is to arrange the cardboards in a criss-cross manner and pass the bamboo sticks.
Step 5: Use the hot glue to close all the ends of the sticks and repeat this same process for another end also.
