taking tyres off STANLEY de mountable split rims

Hi there everybody me again with another silly question.
does anybody have the correct SPLIT RIM JACK for taking tyres off the rim ?and getting them back on again !!! . I have seen a video /youtube of the model T ford boys using the jack on their wheels ( probably slightly smaller than mine which is 32 x 4 1/2 )but a similar split rim and it took them about 5 minuits and not a tyre lever in sight they did however use a big rubber mallet though.

does anybody know of one that i can borrow to measure it to make one or if they are still made or available second hand.

I managed to get the old tyre off using tyre levers but i would not like to try getting a new tyre and tube back on the same way!

the jack consists of a 3 legged spider one leg of which is extended in or out using a handle and 2 bevel gears
