That's a great idea DM. I might build one when my wife gets to old to lift them up and hold them while I fix them.

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

Love the idea of this drywall lift and applauded your ingenuity. It kind of reminds me of a catapult, but, you can buy a drywall lift at Harbor Freight for $219.00. It may not last for commercial work, but would work great for home jobs. Still, I might build this just to see it work, and I'm bored stiff in Florida!
You made my night! Thanks!

Pretty cool. For people who are not as ingenious, you could just buy one and sell it on craigslist when you're finished. I bought mine for $150 brand new and I've seen the same one selling used for $150+. So it's kind of like a free rental. Plus the real one helps you hang the top row of walls as well which was helpful for putting up 12 and 16 footers by myself.

Didn't read the whole thread......but for like $150 you can buy the harbor freight model, breaks down to nothing for storage, sets up quick, good for up to ten foot ceilings, sell it on Craig's list when you're done....or keep it like my son did and loan it out to friends! Ron
