a quick update... my son and i did all 10 panels in the new dining room using the lift. looks great! one small problem was the bottom cross support takes more of the load than i thunked and therefore needed extra support. no biggie. disassembled it to 4 pieces and storing till spring and the next room.

another update. i raised the crank from floor level, and now ONE person can crank it up! holding the top runners steady while cranking up was the problem, but now that's been resolved. WOOHOO! perhaps a drawer handle mounted on the top runner to hold on to is next? that'd probly help too.

MdangermouseM - I was referred over here from another site because of your design and if you have plans or a few minutes to toss some together...

Otherwise, you said something in a previous post about a 10' footprint, so I have to ask: How does the thing do in corners?

Thanks and yeah, cool design.

the 10' footyprint is only when it's down at 4' being loaded. it's fine in corners and against any wall once it's UP. then the footyprint is 6' and it rolls right in to corners ok as the sheet extends 12" in all directions. i sent TryAgain a PM to say i'd work on easy assembly plans over this weekend if time allows. =o)

Question

can you build your own drywall lift?....done!


I am a gal who lives in a small town and contractors do not seem to call back, let alone show up. Go figger... I do most of my own repairs because of this.
Anyways, I am attempting to hang a drywall ceiling...since mine recently began to come down.
I would love to build one of these hoists to do this project...but would probably needs plans to follow. Have you actually developed plans?
If you did, can I get a copy?
