You should be able to pick up one of those come-a-longs they use for chain link fences at most any hardware store. I've seen them in 2 and 4 ton ratings and they are only $25-$40. That should get the job done. I have 2 of the ones you're talking about and you could use them if you weren't so far away.
what do those chain link ones look like ?
they arent like the cheap small cable ones are they ?
cuz the cable ones are all too small to crank this roof weight,
ive already tried.. and they are the only oens that stores around here carry, not much of anything out here in corn field land.
Yup, those are the ones.
Sounds like one I used to have, cast "Coffing Hoist" on the housing. I think Harbor Freight and Northern Tool both carry a similar unit.
oh hey does anyone know the best way to layout supporting lumber pieces from collar ties up to roof rafters ?
in order to keep wall tops form spreading back out and to help support rafters roof weight ?
this is just a normal gable end design roof nothing fancy at all
big heavy roof and rafters are 2x6 built in late 560s or early 60s it all looks brand new still, pretty much, and roof decking is all 1x6" boards
hmm.. that may be it, dunno, something like that, heh
ill have to look on this oen i have upstairs connected
one i have is cast with A.B. CHANCE CO. on the handle and CHANCE CO on the main body and oiling instructions and such too,
