    I dunno, 9,000 lb capacity Hyster on solid tires. I guess I'm not a forklift guy. It was really stable testing it with a 3200LB ecology block.

    Yes. With a STANDARD forklift mast as soon as you raise the forks off the ground the mast raises an equal distance.

    You have a free lift mast.

    We call them "container spec" - ie. you can lift the forks inside a shipping container without the mast punching a hole in the roof.

    I always referred to standard mast forklifts as having the “can opener” option.

    I have had a few small projects in the shop that I needed to do.... Get these things off the floor... A hanger for the blower and two weed eater hangers. These hangers will keep the blower and weed eaters from coming off the wall...Name:  weed eater hanger #2.jpg

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    Finally got back to fixing the railing that had to take down for the water line break.
    Had to do some bending on the platform rail... then welded it up after I welded the concrete platform down to the supports.

    Then it was time to put the two concrete treads back on.

    The two steel flats cantilever under the upper tread to give it clearance from the tread below it and I can shim under the flats if the tread isn't running level

    When I removed this tread I just used a zip disc to slice right through the existing weld on the 4x4 support.. so reinstalling it was just grind a bit on the positioning plates an reweld them

    Didn't get the other two pieces of railing back on.... It was raining and blowing and I was wet and cold besides... it was friday and it's gonna take a bit of refabbing the rest of the railing as it had been 'adjusted' by truck drivers a few times

    Finally built my largest project so far. A rolling material rack. Feels good to have little less chaos.

    Picked up some 3” x 1/8 wall square tube and 1”x2” rectangular tube for my welding table base.
    Still need casters.
    Still working on my welding but much happier with my beads

    I worked on several tilt up buildings welding walls together and to the floor plates, some were covered with a thin wash of concrete and barely visible until you brushed them off... Had a carpenter ask me where we bought concrete arc rods.

    I find that if you wet the rod and roll it in portland cement dust it works best kinda works like flux for concrete...

    LOL!!! yeah, it's OK... but the thin fabric roof is a bit on the leaky side Looked at a job the other day where we have to clean up a site and get rid of a bunch of rock slabs and eco blocks.... was thinking they would make a nice little block house!!!

    All this stuff needs to leave the site!!! would like to save the slabs but don't have a good way to handle this kind of thing??? I've seen granite guys use one of the edge pinch thingies like for lifting steel sheet... but this might be a bit different??? so our way would be 'tap' it with the excavator bucket and then scoop up the pieces

    Yeah... but you still have to handle them on the other end of transporting them??? cause dumping them out of a dump trailer *may* chip them up a bit

    FREE if you want em'... You haul and load.. we might be able to help load will probably have a couple excavators and forklift on site.... not sure what the slabs weigh??? but the blocks are ~3600 lbs each. In seattle, boeing area.
