It was safe ,,All I needed it up this high for was changing the pan gasket and replacing all the brake lines to the wheels with stainless ,, I worked off the rolling stool at just the right height .. I got them 2" board free at the job I was working on building a new grade school.. they just burned all the tailings up every few days ..a METAL lift would of been nice though..

Idaho, I was not knocking how safe it was. I had some other thoughts about Ron's comment about knowing wood.
But, those thoughts are not fit for this forum. Yes, I fall into the gutter fairly fast.

I didn't take it that way Don ,, I replied to everyone eplaining that it really wasnt as unsafe as it might look .,, I had a couple guys stop by my shop back then and thought it looked scary to them too.. I would maybe had a lift put in ,,but I built the tall doors so to get my back hoe in the shop when servicing it, AND if I were to be swaping out a motor I might of had on blocks the first lift ,,but not the second .. by the way ,,did you ever get the chance to climb the cooling tower,, ?

Ever seen a big piece of construction equipment like a dozer or a crawler crane being repaired onsite? A stack of railroad ties in the proper crisscross pattern will hold up an incredible amount of tonnage- - - -perfectly safely!

I also knew it was perfectly safe--much safer than concrete blocks--hence my comment.

Idaho, that setup looks good, but would be a pain to get it there and back down.
And no, I did not get to climb the cooling tower. I wanted to in my younger days, but about the age of 45, I didn't want to as much.
I do have pictures I took from the top dead center of the Can looking straight down into the open reactor during a refuel, probably about 70 to 80 foot.
We were doing an inspection of the containment spray nozzles.
Did you get to climb the towers at Columbia? Or did you help build them?

Jerry, I have seen a lot of heavy duty cranes set up on fresh 12x12 oak cribbing. I'm talking over 100 ton cranes.
Idaho has too, I'm sure.
