Ok....maybe not love..but shit I had laying around for years



The beam it is 4x8 with 1/2 Web 9 foot long. I have got the channel iron sattel tacked to hold round 4in tube



Welded after squared and small gusset added





Tube clamp ready for ticky tack....should be held true Cuz channel is square



Tacked in squared using 3 4 5 method was only out by a quarter inch



Here in standing it up..kinda a puckering experience. I did the feet same as sides with channel as the sattels

I've been thinking about building one that I could use outside...... but I really don't need any more projects started at the moment...

It's just a few hairs short of 8 foot. It needs to fit through the shop door. The sidewalls are 10....someday I'll make it adjustable...but I work on old tractors so it's needed more for support than high lift....

I'm kinda pro-forklift for moving and hoisting things; but by the looks of it between your engine crane and gantry you should be able to get er done with no difficulty..nice work
