    Fitted a 200kg mobility hoist in the workshop at the weekend, this will allow me to pickup 200kg and put it anywhere in the workshop within 300mm of the walls. That includes picking up chucks, etc for the lathe a mills
    Runs off two 12v batteries working a 24v paravlux motor to a seatbelt type wheelchair hoist. With a small motor to give power on the cross axis. Once docked it charges and gies to sleep. Batteries where shot on this, but are only 22quid for the pair and should last a few yrs. gerry rigged two batteries to get it working.

    It will never see max load. I have a B&T for that. Should make moving stuff about easier.

    I need to make some hooks etc to pick chucks up.

    That’s a great little thing - I really wished when I had my garage built I would have put something in, it’s a struggle trying to lift heavy bits off the lathe/mill etc - one of those would be a godsend for my poor back :thumbup:

    Its spelt correctly. Searching for ‘pawl’ brings up rotary type, not jd2 bender linear type.

    this is for a residential use. I screwed it to the ceil/floor joists. They are 9x3" at 18’ centres two screws per joist will hold far more than 200kg plus hoist. 650mm drop to underneath of headunit

    Test it on your biggest chuck first: the vertical leg has to be minimum half chuck diameter. Also, if the vertical is too short, and the pawl leg too long, it might hit the headstock before the chuck is seated.
