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

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

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.

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 :shock:

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