    Custom Challenge Coins

    My brother has been wanting to get some challenge coins made up for the school he works at. He has worked there as a teacher since they opened the high school back in 2002. It is a small, private,...
  2. Re: Making of an "A" framed adjustable height rolling gantry cran

    Time for the real test of the new shop built, adjustable height rolling gantry crane. Using one of the new trolleys and hoists, we lift from the center of the gantry which is it's weakest point....

    With the main structures complete, it gets assembled. The sides get casters and locks:

    Attached the legs to the I beam along with a tubular gusset. The end caps of the I beam also tie into the legs.

  7. Re: Making of an "A" framed adjustable height rolling gantry cran

    Some gussets were added in the webbing, to add strength and stability to the beam, and that will also act as hard stops for the trolleys.

  8. Re: Making of an "A" framed adjustable height rolling gantry cran

    Time to focus on the I beam itself.

    Start by capping the ends.

    Next up are the legs for the I beam. These will slide within the sides that were just made. Instead of using regular square tubing, I opt to use 2 lengths of rectangular tubing that when welded...

    Once the sides were almost welded together completely, it was noticed their overall width was going to end up WAY too wide.

    Started welding those finished parts together to create larger sub assemblies:

    The casters and locks arrived. Same setup we use with the majority of heavy equipment we build and use around the shop. Casters are a HD 8"x2" greaseable swivel plate caster with brakes.

    The shop has been in need of a more graceful way of handling heavy objects then just our forklift. The shop is small and the scheduled is always packed, so shop space is limited, usually leading to...

    It was decided the quickest and strongest fix was to remove what was left of the old mount and fabricate a new one from scratch. The old mount wouldn't be able to be perfectly matched since it had...
