I know it's not nearly as cool, but what about the Armstrong method?

Hook a winch to it!:bigrofl:

Seriously, I took the liberty of 'borrowing' an image and marked something up on it:

Put two uprights (blue), hook a cable between outside of wings (red), over pulleys on uptights, tie to cylinder in middle (white).

This is my rendition of it. A floating cylinder attached to the uprights. The geometry would have to be figured right for this to work......the height of uprights in relation to needed piston strokex2 to fully lift each side.

Both good ideas. I see on Kenny's you can actually lift them simultaneously, but the simplicity of Daniel's idea is great.

well i shut the lights off in the shop, came in the house and heated up some apple pie put a scoop or two of ice cream on it and finished that then took a nap . i think that was more important than the disc at the time lol . but yes i think i have a plan i need to get the cylinders .

I'm sorry Gary, but that sounds like a winter preparation project that never happened in time for this winter haha. I have a few of those projects, sucks the whole winter because of them lol.

One thing you want to keep in mind is the wings need to lock down or they will ride up. I remember back when wing disc first came out, they had all kinds of contraptions to lift and then hold them in place. Some used towers with cables and pulleys some used couplers on the ganges with pins in them. If you have any implement dealers around go look at their equipment as they have simplified it a lot. What you have done so far looks great keep it up.
