    Thank you ❤️ xx... Its being removed before I return to work and another 2 post ramp put in its place, much easier to work under much more access etc.. be good to Oxy cut the 4 post up it’s extremely old it’s an old mot ramp with tracking plates. But there long gone. I should have had it serviced. But then there’s if’s and but’s... I’m just glad it had a brake on it

    Blimey that’s a H&S lawsuit there. @Parm could chime in on this.

    Hope you are recovering.

    With the £100 welder you’d be much better getting something newer, inverter based. You won’t need more than 20A Power that way and they’re reliable.
    Save your pennies up.

    It’s her own place, I doubt she wants H&S crawling all over it.

    Ah didn’t realise that. Lifts aren’t toys.
    Makes me shudder when old lifts get bought privately and no longer are they inspected or maintained.

    Lifts are dangerous and often you don’t get a second chance. OP has been very lucky to walk away

    I worked at a garage many years ago and our Tecalemit 4-poster used to slowly creep down.
    You didn't notice it for quite a while until you realised you were stood under a car with bent knees.
    When we packed up for the day we used to lock all the customers' cars inside. One was always parked under the 4-poster which was then propped up with bits of tubing. :vsad:

    Aye. Not helped by how far backwards the front feet were lifting.

    I was amused when the guy tried to hold on to it and prevent it going over - it was waaay beyond the point of balance by that time. :laughing:
