You'd be surprised. I think a lot of people are in the know now-a-days.

I thought *everyone* had some in their tool kit - just in case.

I thought about some C4 but all the Home Depot here has is some cheap Chinese made Semtex.

Re: '46 Chevy Shorty

Howdy All --- Spent a few days putting together a home made hoist and just got it upright today. Had to bribe four bar flys with a bucket o' beer to help pick it up but we got it up in a minute. No can do solo, it was hard enough positioning and welding everything on my own! Still need to mount the trolley & winch but should be able to start on the motor & trans placement soon. Will be busy teaching a class for almost two weeks, then back on this project.

BTW...these things have gotten expensive even at the cheapo, Chinese tool places. Between $1700 & $2400 bucks for 3-$400 bucks worth of steel! And that is less the trolley & winch. Never could find anything I'd trust used so I bit the bullet and just built the damned thing. Like I said...about 3-$400 bucks for the steel and should easily be good to 2 tons...four times the weight of my engine & trans.

Re: '46 Chevy Shorty

Hey Tango, Have fun teaching! I know your students will leave your class with a whole new bag of tricks;--BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE!

I'd have given an Atta boy for the "A frame"thingy but obviously it never happened as there are no pictures

I'll look forward to hearing about it all when you get back. Jack
