If I need to suspend a bike I have a big 'eye bolt' screwed into a ceiling joist and a nylon strap that holds a motorized bike very easily.
nice fab ...i like it..especially the screw/jackbolt w/socket...very well thought out....
....i asked if there could be some consideration for another section on the site for/to display home- shop photos, ideas, homemade tools..work centers....and the like....not so much for the pros/commercial guys.....but the "shade tree low enders"....the "dumpster diver's"....so all these innovative things dont get lost in the everyday threads....wadda ya think?
