free plans for homemade drywall lift!

Once again, sorry if I offended in any way.

Looks like the perfect time to pull in more outlets
and add some foam insulation panels to the outside walls.
that is exactly why i am doing all of this. my walls have no insulation.
and 1 wall in the living room, 30' long, only has 1 outlet . and the rest of the house is not much better.

panel lifts ?


same one I have ( paint color too) .. mine winds the cable till it slips a little and falls about a 1/2 inch /// no biggie, but the firs ttime it did that scared the poo out of me ( well almost)

i waited a couple months of cruising CL, but they all wanted more than it cost from Amazon ( free prime shipping) like mentioned they are all made in the same Chinese factory ( or a competing one across the street ... lol ) i have no idea how they can ship this much weight for nothing .

I have a hunch that all of the China lifts are about the same.
I bought one new (can't remember what company) for $150 including shipping.
It's red and called the 'lazy lifter pro'

I had 36 sheets of 5/8"x4'x8' to put on the ceiling.
At age 66 and working alone, there's no way I could have did it without a lift.
And, as slow as I am, renting one would have cost me several times that amount.

Probably not nearly as rugged and well constructed as a 'real' professional lift,
but it sure worked fine for me.

yeah. this is one of those tools. that, when you are done with it, you just throw it in the garbage. it is still worth the money.
