Plans - Truck Mounted Hoist

So while I was browsing the Metalworking Drop Box yesterday I came across plans for a truck mounted hoist. Problem is, it was such a poor scan it was unusable. It was scanned from the Lincoln Foundation book "Arc Welded Projects Volume II". I checked my shelves and sure enough, I had it. These project books are all available on the Lincoln welding site, but sadly shipping to Canada has recently become prohibitive.

I have had use for one of these many times on my yard truck, and I have been on the verge of buying an import on sale more than once. I have always backed off because I have everything I need to build my own, (if I could only get off my butt cheeks, lol ). This plan is better than the imports and if you build it, you control the quality.

So here is the plan, resolution is very good, so expand for best view.

Check out the next post for a nice welding & cutting bench from the same book.
