Thanks for the heads-up! I would like to see my kids grow up. And now I and others know.


Now I need to fab something with a lifting eye that the cylinder can sit atop and strap to. Time to roll out the MIG.
Some sort of sling maybe?

Lay it out in the truck bed, roll the cylinder into the middle then hook some loops from the corners or something.
