Need some 4" square tube, Kirk? I was looking for some 1 to 2" and this was all I could find. A little heavy for some jack stands.



I did install the cheap HF trolley and 2 ton chain fall. No way would I ever contemplate lifting 2 tons with that stuff, but for less than a thousand pounds of tractor, it's just fine.



I'm keeping a lookout for an electric lift. They come up every now and then on CL.

You can't read it in the pic, but I chuckled when I noticed a sticker from Spanco that says "Made in America". Yep, and that top beam is metric spec and came from a supplier in Argentina based on the markings.

The paint is coming of in some places, and you can see markings underneath that identified the parts, and that they didn't bother to clean off before paint.

I'll get it cleaned up, sanded down and repainted later on.

You are a great fabricator with amazing ideas.

Just one thing, if I remember correctly, when using cable chockers the bolts should be on the long cable while the "U" should be on the short end.

Hey Kirk:

If I was more computer savvy I'd be able to post this pic, but since I'm just a noob, here's a link to a site that my cousin in Iowa sent me today, check out the 8th picture down on page 2 from April 16th:

Nice work, Dave!

I wish I had a magical scrapyard where I live! They sure do have good "junk" there!

I would have thought a rig like this would have gussets running at a 45 from the legs to the span...

Nope - Spanco doesn't use them. This is how it comes from the factory.
