-Norm, The hoist is handmade from scraps. I bought the ram from Northern tools. I was worried my trailer would sag on the corner its mounted to but it does real well. Its also handy for loading my MM210 when I am by myself which is most of the time.
-Bill C. I had gotten some great work from a paper co. called Weyerhauser. Things were looking good and then they got bought out by International Paper. I am now listed as a vendor for IP but they are shutting down plants left and right. A weld shop that I worked for last year has all but shutdown. He had about ten guys working for him.
-Fusion king, Sorry things have slowed for you also, I don't know what the future holds for everyone but I am going to try and hold on. Hopefully when the economy recovers the guys still in business will make up there losses. Happy thanksgiving everyone, Adam
