    In my experience a come along is for horizontal loads and a lever hoist can be used for lifting, they are different animals. Also I would take a wild guess that the chain on that harbor freight lever...

    I have a cheap 1" drill bit with a 1/2" shank. It will drill steel plate just fine, but 1.5" may be too much for a 1/2" shank. I would also recommend an annular cutter, or a MT shank drill. What is...

    Lol I will admit I did not run a straight edge over the piece I cut, only over the whole piece of plate I had. I should have. If you find that piece doesn't work for you, I would be happy to cut...

    That looks like it would take an hour or more to construct, at least he strapped it down. I sold a large kiln to a guy about a month ago that weighed around 800 lbs, I loaded it into his camper van...

    I have used ar500 plate to make a platen for my old belt grinder. I used it for about 5 years before I sold it, it had almost no wear from use.

    I wouldn't buy an alum bed for heavy use, and I also probably wouldn't trust 3300 lbs in the back of a 2500. I do love flatbeds though, you should be able to buy any truck and opt out for a flatbed...

    The only way I would trust a fix like this, would be to make a plug with an o-ring sealing surface. I have tried to fix tanks before with magic goo and it just leaves to headaches.

    The table should spin 360 degrees for one thing, I know a universal can't. It probably has a bit more y travel. Do those have a quill? that would be another big upgrade from a universal. I sure wish...
