    Many A-frames don't take moving under load kindly, but can't dispute this works. Actual load weight is one factor, load height [CG], position within footprint of casters, and load balance. I'm certain doubled bracing on the same side might be more instrumental than apparent, along with combined outrigger-brakes, unloading the casters.
    Good job, moving heavy parts single-handed is frequent issue.

    One feature I really like is the LED UFO light mounted above the scaffolding on what appears to be a swing arm
    I can not even count the times I had wished there had been a work light on an A frame crane I was using when trying to pull and engine or set a machine in place
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
    When I have to paint I use http://kbs.justoldtrucks.com/

    No matter how many lights you install, you'll still resort to using a flashlight at some point.
