Trying to track down a special tool for tipping a car on one side

Several months ago, someone had a type of jack for sale that enabled you to jack up one side of the car enough to work on the underside.

I had no spare cash and no place to put that thing at the time, but now I do.

But I can't find the reference.

Can anyone help?
Thanks

One of those rotisserie things used during restorations?

With all that great space you should look seriously at just getting a lift
installed.

I may get a lift in a year or two, but this enables me to work and weld w/o being under the car.

Besides, we had a forum member who needed some cash, this would help him out. I just can't find him.

I'd love to buy the one in AZ but I could never get out there in time to pick it up. I'm sure he wants it gone sooner.

Unless someone in AZ wants to hold it for me for a week or two?
