@David-R8, do you have any idea how much your mill weighs ?
Did you move your mill with your shop crane, lifting straps, and stand attached ?
What strength and length are your lifting straps being used with your lathe ?
To lift your mill which pin hole position was your shop crane, 1/2 ton ?
Thanks David your comments offers me some info to think about. PA has 4 foot with end loops although their 8 foot are endless whatever that means ? I assume your slings are 1 inch wide ? From whom did you purchase your slings ?
I'm looking at buying the same hoist, have you had any issues/limitations with it?
I looked at my straps and they have a much greater capacity than I previously said.
Straight pull - 3100 lbs
Loop - 2400 lbs
Cradle - 6200 lbs
And they are 10 ft.
Blame it on my lousy memory.
Thanks @Dusty, indeed the descent into chaos was swift and so shall be the return to normalChaos never lasts you'll have things in top shape soon enough just keep on trucking. Like your equipment covers, airborne dust and such is a sure killer on oiled machines and components. Hard to avoid when doing woodwork and shop rebuild.
It happens. It’s either a work shop or a museum, it’s hard to find the middle road where it’s organized but functional
I dunno know maybe its just me but I really like pictures of people's shops.
