Somehow we've ended up with a 1000 foot reel of 4/0 SER for the current job I'm on. Leftover from another job I suppose. I have always used 500 foot reels and do not have jack stands that jack up high enough for the 1000 footer. This may seem like a dumb question I just wanted to see if any of you guys have encountered the same thing and how you managed it. I do not want to buy new jack stands at this moment. only thing that comes to my mind is to build a platform for each stand out of cinder blocks. just don't know how stable this will be. any feedback is appreciated.
