I am trying to learn; in professional forums such as this one where there is a wealth of knowledge!
You assume I will "small size MIG" stick everything together...
I know for structural it should and will be welded by stick 7014/7018; yes I do have a stick welder AC/DC 225/150 and although not CWB certified I have built many trailers, repaired equipment without failures. I tend to overbuild things.
Some of you guys have been very rude. If you do not want to help and just be an ass...stay out of it. Do you want this to be another SFT
I quit reading and regularly posting here about two years ago because of the rudeness of several members and the general lack of helpfulness/encouragement exhibited in many posts. I check back about once a year to see if things have changed. This year is worse than last. I might log in next year and check again.
It is easy to understand why guys making a living out of welding are reluctant about elevators.
Not having enough of murphy's law, newton's law plus human factor have to be added when elevators are the topic.
Add to that building codes, safety, insurances etc... you have the perfect thing to stay away from.
However we all seen one somewhere and it is possible to make one , make a lot of research and have the proper electrical and mechanical protections good design and some more stupid proofing combined with over load/travel protection and...ahhhhh get a hoist ;o)
