    Was off this weekend. Didn't do much, hauled some junk off to scrap and unloaded a trailer im going to sell.

    Probably be throwing together a machinery shed out of telephone poles and used tin. Gonna look like shit, but tired of seeing building material rot out in the field.

    Looks good Matt - maybe even tall enough to help with the 10 foot tall 15,000 Lb Jig Bore - though the weight may be a bit much. What size/weight is that top wide flange?

    It's a 14x53 on top. Legs are 12x30s.

    There is a heavy 14" channel at the scrap yard that im going to brace the top beam with .

    Been thinking about either leaving it outside or making a hitch so I can move it around wrih a tractor.

    Also was thinking about leaving it outside, itll be handy non the less.

    Getting on up there - A.I.S.C. Steel Construction shows near 150 total allowable moment in kip ft in a 16 foot unbraced span for 14 X 53 in the beam tables page 2- 72. This is for the 50K steel grade

    Pretty sure its just A36.

    Im more worried about my crappy welds than the beam failing under load.

    Still needs more bracing. But gotta use the gantry to real seal the boom lift cylinder in the F800.

    I knew it needed to be replaced. But wanted to get some other stuff done before I took the crane down. But can't wait any longer. The wiper seal is starting to bulge out from the leak.

    Wide flange beams like you have are most likely grade 50. Most made now are even dual graded as A36/A572. Where I beams (tapered flanges)are most likely to be just A36. Not a guarantee, just a good generalization.

    To be easier to move did you think of adding some truck wheels to it? Two wheels just off the ground on one side so when you pick up the other side with a tractor or forklift it will roll like a wheelbarrow.

    Did a little after work wrench turning. Gantry is already proving to be handy

    Glad im redoing this cylinder. Grub screw worked loose and piston was loose on rod. Backed off like an 1" or so.

    Found the grub screw at the bottom of the cylinder

    Interesting hydraulic fluid you got there. Is it chocolate milk?

    It's a special blend of oil and water. I just drained 5 quarts of it out of a fork lift engine........

    Did it have the special crusty red abrasive additive too?

    I've never pulled a big cylinder apart in a gravel driveway when I had a nice big shop to work in a few steps away.

    Saves cleaning spilled oil, it automatically goes back where it came from!

    Not as important when taking apart as when putting back together.
