On the Jet 3500 from Stromberg-Carlson the socket is 3/4 (19 mm) same as your Leveling Jacks.

Sounds like I might just replace mine with a good old fashioned hand crank. KISS.

Ours failed last year right before a trip. I used a breaker bar and I think a 5/8" socket. I used it that way while waiting to take it for warranty. When I was hooking up to head to the dealer for replacement that nut broke. Luckily the jack was high enough to clear the road. I use a 5 gallon bucket to cover the new one, held in place with the safety chains. There was a lot of water in the bad jack when it was removed.

Whoa, that's no good! That's the first I've heard of the manual function failing like that. That's kind of scary. Makes me wish I could just replace mine now, but DW says "not 'till it fails" ...

Same thing happened to us. Couldn't unhook, so we opened it up took out the gear to the motor. I guess water leaked into the motor and locked it up. Once the motor gear was out we could use our handle to crank it up and down. Dealer replaced it under warranty but now we are going to keep it covered.
