In 2008, I built this crane to get the chop saw up and out of the way when I am not using it. I eventually built a flip up tray to secure the saw, so it’s not dangling in the air, over my head. This is a great space saver.
The sheeves are made of lawn mower wheels; the winch is from Grainger; and the ropes are from HD. The saw weighs about 50# and the crane is good for at least 200# – the ropes are the limiting factor.
Thanks for having a look. J-
