I did a fairly standard HFDC modification a couple of years ago that just got finished today. Although I’ve never posted it as a project, I have posted photos as a reference in a couple of DC threads.
Today I got a PM from ChunkyC asking the very logical question “How do you support the weight of the motor/blower unit when you empty the can?” Anyone who has modified one of these will know about the weight and the “top heavy, wants to flip over in your hands and cut you” tendencies of this assembly so he didn’t want to have to lift it off every time he wanted to empty the can.
Well, I told him how I had done it, but that was just a little bit of a white lie. It was, of course, what I had always planned to do but I hadn’t actually done it. I’ve been lifting it off and cursing when it flipped over and cut me.
Isn’t it nice we all have fellow LJ’s to kick us in the butt every once in a while to get us to finish what we have started? I think so….....................Thanks ChunkyC.
This is my “Sky Hook”. It goes to a hook in the rafters.
