I've been designing a welding bed and I want a set of gin poles. I've got most of the bed and boxes worked out, but I want some input on the gin poles. I've looked and looked at pictures on the net and I've tried to find some to look at in person with no luck. So I would really appreciate it if some of you guy that run and or build poles could give me a heads up on what mistakes not to make now.
I have thought about a small winch like a 3000 lb. but now I'm leaning more toward a larger one. Also, unless something changes my setup will be on my 99 chevy 2500.
