my mechanic buddy ken got one of those cheap engine hoists. it worked okay til he went after a v8, then the boom started taking a bow. He had wilmes weld on some proper square tubing and now it lifts right. So it was still cheap. :)

Mornin, all....Toolman, Lee Valley Tools are pretty good quality woodworking tools, used to get their catalogues, but could never afford their prices...have everything you would ever want in hand tools. Far as Bob's Busy Bee tools, used to get their catalogue of the niehbors bought a milling machine from them.... chattered every time he used it....found out there wasn't hardly any metal around the collett for stability.....when he phoned the company to complain, got somebody on the other end who never heard of the english language.....except profanity....must be the universal language..... adjo, R.E.L.
