Due to old age , arthritis, and a little bit of laziness, I finally broke into the piggy bank and bought a hoist and lift table from Harbor Freight. They had them marked down cheaper than I'd seen them before, and by making separate purchases I used the super coupons for an additional "savings".
The hoist is rated for 220/440 pounds. But I'll be using it mostly to pick up motors and GT components.
I bought a 10' channel and rollers for hanging a barn door and mounted it to the ceiling and supported by the rafters.
The lift is rated for 1000 pounds. The lift table is only 27" wide so I covered it with some boards, and
sheeting left over from other projects. It is now 38" wide and 1" thick with cross-bracing underneath.
I had to alter the bend on the pump pedal since it would have been hidden under the new top.
