    Jib crane for my machine shop van

    One thing that always comes in handy is a way to lift and move heavy objects.
    My HHG van trailer is gradually becoming a machine shop. Today I mounted the first to 2 short jib crane beams to a framework I had installed
    I will be able to lift about 1000 lbs on either of them then swing those items from outside to the inside and position them over my lathes.

    I still need to add some bracing and come up with a couple of hoists
