I really haven't given any thought to an easy way, I was just planning on lugging them up there the old fashioned way!
You've got me thinking now though!

I dig the video. Really enjoyed the time lapse when your arms got tired! I sure know that feeling.

Thanks.....Funny you caught that! I wonder how many others realized that my arms just gave up!

Did you see the "doublers" I was talking about in your thread?

There's a photo a bit further down in thread that shows the damage. It got so hot it basically welded the roller bearings to the race and seized it permantly onto the spindle.
