This half wine barrel with dwarf orange tree I used leverage with long screw driver and 2 X 4's and shims of of wood that first put it on the wagon. When next to where fence was temporarily removed at top of stair case, I raised it further up to meet the landing using log cabin crosses of wood. One of the steel bars is seen on the left side of image where it has a 27lb lead shot weight belt near the end of that lever while I stood back and marveled at what I was doing myself alone. I don't need to worry about having the tree egress indoor/outdoors any more. I now live were it usually stays above 40F.Hi Pete,
Wish there was someone to give some help getting it off the stands like you had. As it is we're down to two old duffs in their 70's and they are in feeble fit condition.
Heck yeah that'll work.As I was reading your comment Rick, I thought about the engine hoist that is right next to the tri car. I believe that part of the problem is solved. We have lot's of straps to hook it up.
No old lads will be hurt in the process.
LOL! Ya when at the mill guys would bring in all kinds of parts to fix, in the machine shop. A lot of times that's all it took, was to sand it flat...........CurtCurt, the lapping of the sediment bowl never occurred to me. I have master flats an diamond compound. I have a 1953 Ford Jubilee Tractor and Homelite/Bearcat outboards with sediment bowls too. The Ford has a leak, and you got the fix. Thanks Curt.
It really is a "Watch This" I know, but I knew if wind started up I'd be running back dropping my cell phone camera and preventing a collapse. I have now to move the tree again to allow room for hops plants, and the handy 3 foot long jeweler screw driver will take no brute force just move it a couple feet over. There is also the attached picture with derrick hoist slide pulley an block. I used this to lift other engine that was 90 pounds, though in the picture was like 25 lb Briggs just to get an idea how I was going to weld on an engine platform to the bike frame. The saw horses were the limiting factor for how much weight I could lift. It takes a bit of time to set up so I reserve it for special needs. In the past at rental space, the 8 ton hoist with above mono-rail thingie can lift and move all around the building. The controller hanging in front of the light work, my motor bike.I think some creative staring would get it down, after seeing MT's picture LOL......Curt
