Yesterday I drilled 252 holes for shelf pins in a china cabinet I am building.

I was unloading some walnut logs and I accidentally backed my forklift off the concrete. I chained up the Chevy 3500, but that was a no go. I'll have to jack it up tomorrow ( which is a job all in itself) and put some blocks under the wheels.

hmmmm...

The more weight you try to lift on the forks, the lighter the rear of the fork lift becomes. Got anything really heavy like your truck could could "attempt" to lift to reduce the jacking effort?

It may be difficult get a jack under there and it will tend to sink into the mud, so be very careful! A bottle jack would be better than a High Lift which has about a 6000 lb limit if I recall. This one lifts 7000 lbs:
http://www.hi-lift.com/hi-lift-jacks/
But the bolt shears at 7000, so it's risky at that weight!

Another method is to wrap a chain from the rear hitch on the lift,if any, up and over the top of the forks lifted up high to your truck hitch and pull that way. The fulcrum provided by the fork's bar will tend to lift the rear up while you pull at the same time.... just a thought.

I used that technique to carry a large shed on my forks using the backhoe arm stretched out to keep tension on the chain. The further I extended the hoe bucket the more it lifted the opposite end of the shed.

As with almost everything, it's all about "leverage" and physics.

I have a high lift jack, but it is not adequate for the job. The curb weight of that sucker is 11,800. Tying the chain high on the forklift would lift the back end, but also lifts the rear of the truck. The truck isn't heavy enough to make much difference. Now, that does get my thinking. If I had an anchor point I could lift the forks up, tilt them forward hook up the chain, and tilt the forks back.

You're not trying to toptally lift it .....

You're not trying to totally lift it, just help get the rear up a bit so you can get some blocks under the tires. Enough 1 X's and you can drive it off under it's own power or with some help from the truck.

It still has to lift the whole rear up which is likely over 6,000 pounds.

Completed the frame of the lawn bench by joining 16 straight pieces to the curved ribs. Required 32 small mortise and tenons and 64 dowels. Put the frame out in the sun to dry.


Next weekend, I will make the lattice work for the bench.

If you or a neighbor has another machine that has forks or a bucket on the front would be ideal. Then just come behind it and lift the counterweight. You don't have to lift it completely, just enough so the drive wheels (usually on the front) have enough weight on them to pull forward. I've gotten my fair share of forklifts stuck and that's what I've always done.

Finally listed my 1948 Oliver 8' lathe on Craigslist - we'll see... I need to make room for my CNC router (not yet delivered).

Sold some vintage music equipment at Guitar Center, listed the amp they wouldn't take on craigs list. Started packing the container for our move.

Tact is for people not witty enough to be sarcastic.

Went to a new lumber yard and brought home 2 nice walnut slabs and a nice walnut plank. Good prices too. Looking forward to turning them into a new coffee table. Also went to HD and picked up my order of Bessey clamps. I need more clamps.

And just now listed my Delta DJ-15 jointer on Craigslist, to go along with the 8' Oliver lathe I'm trying to get rid of (Post #69 above). I need the room! Besides, I don't need two jointers.

Spent the day yesterday wrestling a 500+ lb planer down a set of concrete steps into my basement, then running PVC pipe for dust collection. Stoked that my home shop is finally coming together!

Do you have hashmarks on your wall for how many times you've done it, like prisoners keeping track of their jail sentences?

Yesterday, I scroll sawed a sign for my uncle and his wife. I think it'll be a gift for letting me stay with them a couple times when I was working out of town, if I charged them for my time they'd never speak to me again.

I hate signatures.

No, I didn't do that however I had the same thought when I posted here today. At this point I would have to guess at a number to start with, which would probably be six times. Once I got him within ten minutes of posting his spam.

I built a horizontal router table

It was a quick and dirty build for our member Danny870 who started a thread on horizontal raised panels. See posts 37,38 and 39 for my build.
