I have two very old scaffolding I brought at a auction years old.  Used them to do roofing on my house and garages. To use them for scaffolding I use two 2x4's 12 foot and a 2x12 12 foot long. (one of my ramps I used to load garden tractors on my pickup.

I have a three foot extension to use with the scaffolding.  Using the extension it well go up to around 10 feet.  Never used the extension - a little scary walking on a 2x12 10 foot in the air.

 

I had them setting out back of one of one my garages.  Have no used them for years.

I was using two step ladders with a 2x4 between the ladders.

I saw them one day and said to myself they would be easier to setup around than the two ladders.

Been using them this year to paint parts outside.

sorry no picture of that.

So one day I was painting some parts outside and I paint them.

 

I have been pulling motors in the garage under my overhead storage area.

I wanted to be outside to pull a motor so I got the two scaffolding setup with two 2x4's.  Put my chain hoist  on it.  Work great had more room to move around then inside the garage.

Looks handy, yet can be put away!  I could not imagine those being scafolding to work from though.  At first was thinking of the big squarish kind and wondering what you were making as I was reading.

Would work a lot better than a cherry picker I would think.  Several years ago, like about 12 or 14, I picked up and old wagon hoist at an auction for $10.  I set it up in front of the small overhead garage door.  It has many things hanging from it from chain hoist to deer.  Chain hoist stay up through the summer and come down after deer season.  Pulled several motor with it.  Wide enough to work around a tractor with no interference.  One of my better investments.  Just need to get some paint on it.Have some photos of it in use but cannot locate them right now.  For those of you that have not seen one it is an A frame type support on each side, connected together at the top with two heavy angle irons.  Wagon pull between the A frames, two large hooks placed under each front wheel.  A cable system to the top of the A frames and back down to a winch type mechanism to raise the wagon to unload into an elevator.  This one is all 1/4 X3" angle iron.  About 12' to the cross beam.

I just pick them up and set them in place. The last one I grabbed a hold of was a fully loaded K582 and put it in some guys trunk. Stuff like that is probably why I have 4 bulging discs. The 60 pound aluminum block briggs are my limit now.

It was cheaper than going to the gym and paying to lift 200 pounds

I got drafted at 13 to work on a moving van during the next 5 summers. I am blaming my early back and knee problems (at 25) on carrying pool tables, pianos and triple dressers up stairs.

Its good exercise to loosen those tight muscles from work.
