    I hate when I have to work on something bent-over. My head is the first thing to start sweating, and it's not shy about it. Sweat in my eyes sucks.

    Consider bringing a large square fan to at least keep the air moving while you work on projects like that. They cost $10 apiece, so it's not a tragedy if it gets broken.

    Hey Barry - thanks for the 6P 18650 bored flashlight . Also good talking with you. I'll be sending you some other SureFires for boring. Anyway, here's my hobby (addictions) list: astronomy, eyepieces, cameras, camera lenses, tripods, telescope mountings, cacti, bicycles, machining and metal work, high performance cars, hardwood boxes, tools and my most recent, flashlights and batteries.

    Thank you for your kind words Joe. From what you told me you're off to a great start on a high end collection. Watch out - CPF is habit forming & you can never have enough really nice lights

    One of my customers saw the small gantry crane I'd built some time ago & asked me to build one for him. He wanted:

    90" (2.3m) to the top of the I-beam

    60" (1.5m) between the side supports

    1000# (454 kg) lift capacity

    Haven't attached the four swivel caster wheels yet but it's finished other than that. (Ladder in photo is 5' (1.5m) tall for scale)
