This is the one I built for the barn. The vertical pipe is 5 inch dia. and the swing (black) pipe is 4 inch dia. which is a perfect fit. The column is set in one yard of crete and the back brace that goes to the ground is in a half yard. The swing pipe goes down in the vertical pipe way past where the back brace is welded on. My neighbor came down with his hoe and dug out the holes and helped me set the column. I also used the column to weld a vise platform to. The crane is designed to swing to the center of the barn door. I have lifted a measured 1360 pounds with it. Top links cut in half and a piece of pipe welded in between make excellent support brackets. Sorry it looks kinda junky. Ellis

That is a nice one to. So the 4 inch pipe just sits in the 5 inch pipe with no bearing and you can turn it freely just fine?

Junky my foot! That about looks pro. Good on ya! Always wanted to build a 1:1 scale version of the V&T jib crane kit that's in HO scale. I have a couple for my train layout, just don't have a spot for them yet. Bet the timbers to make a real one won't be cheap.

Ellis,

I don't think anything looks junky in these pictures. If my shop was that neat, it would probably mean that I'd died and someone else had cleared it out. I am impressed with your hoist. I'd trust your welding any day compared to a lot of crap coming from today's factories. Some are good, and some are random about quality control. Too often we see a manufacturer's name on an item and three years later the company does not exist, but may be the same factory with a different name. It is the lawyers advice on how to avoid liability for crappy product.

You know what you have and what it will do. I respect that.

Sorry about all the extra pictures, I didn't know how to delete them. Anybody know? Ellis
