    Chain Hoist Extensions Arm

    Wished to have an Extension Arm out from my ‘Over-the-Jeep’ table whereby I could attach a small chain hoist to lift those pesky 100 to 300 pound items from the floor (or from a trailer) onto my large work table.

    The Extension Arm can swing all the way from the Center of my Large Tabletop around to a Work Bench I have behind my work table.

    Added a Digital Hanging Scale to the Chain Hoist Extension Arm

    It has already become an important part of my workshop and use it almost every day.

    Nice one! That digital scale does add a safety factor, in that you'll know beforehand if you're overloading things.
