    I'm on a roll...

    We officially have Wheelie Feeties!













    The blocks under those straps allowed the engine hoist to hold the drill press up rested on the floor without damage to handles, motor mount or the plastic top, while I worked on the foot. Piece_a_cake.

    The base is nice and stable, rolls and turns really easy. The three brakes work extremely well!

    More to come, I got a mini start on the clamp situation tonight.

    I've earned myself a nap.

    Don, I'm jealous. That hoist is something that I could certainly make use of.
    Cheers, Frank

    Congrats on the progress, Don. Not only am I envious of the nice drill press and hoist, but you actually have room to move them around. Bonus!

    That looks like a great stand!

    Love the engine hoist, great tool to have around!

    Ditto on the Hoist. Very handy thing to have around.

    I've used mine to lift a gun safe (900#) into the back of my pickup truck, to Lift my table saw onto a mobile base, etc....

    Very nice looking base on the drill press. Need to get one of those someday!

    What a nice looking shop too Don!

    It's just an engine hoist Frank. One can pick them up fairly cheaply now and then here in the states. I think I saw one on the craigslist for $75 (US) a while back?

    Well believe me Vaughn, I was worried a bit. I have worked long and hard to get some of that space back. I was loaded up with JUNK!
