    Default Rack Attack

    Hi guys and gals. Well after a new shop I realized the old rack just would not go with the new decor.What does one do? After a little sketching on a pad I came up with this. 12 feet heigh (15 feet T.O.S.), a 20 feet wide track to roll on and a span of 22 feet for the 2 ton hoist.
    Now, dont go asking for plans (cause there aint none) I am not a mechanical engineer and do not wish to be held responsible for any ones misfortunes.
    But I might be bribbed to answer a question or two.

    (pictures here were updated ,see thread #3)

    Might need to turn your monitor to the side to view these. It did not save them in the corrected form when they got downloaded.

    Very nice set up!

    You were joking about being a mechanical engineer, correct?
    I didn't see a one of these in your entire system.

    How about an explanation of what that flange is for to us not familiar with structural ironwork?
    Referencing one of his pictures and pointing out where that flange would go in your answer will be awarded with bonus points.

    Those S-shapes are extremely flimsy.
    This is how I would do it.
