    Finally, got a dump of pictures from the construction. I'll just post links to not use up the site's AWS storage so loading might be a bit slower. These are out of order, sorry, it's the order I got them in. The track for the hoist came in today, our lead contractor vetoed the C track and so the fabricator had to get heavier T track. Not sure what they think I'm lifting, they have the hoist in hand and can easily read the max lift.

    Well, finally have updates.

    They couldn't use the smaller box track due to the span so they went to an I-beam. Fair enough, seems large but ok.

    And they picked a trolley that looked good to them ... a big motorized one. NOOOOOOO!

    The trolley is being returned, we'll make our own. What's the load rating on skate board wheels?
