You break out the whip and I am running, what you and the do in the bedroom should stay in the bedroom.

Go check out the lift that Mark has it looks great and holds his stuff fine.

Very nice, but I'll bet that hoist and the cost to install it into the floor is way more money than what I'm planning to spend.

you may want to watch some youtube videos that Mohawk has on it site and see some of the different types of construction before you plop some money down. What I saw was plain scary on some of the lifts that are sold today.
Look to Auctions, you may be able to find a used one in great shape for less money. Most of the time, you need to come and take it out.
Later. Robbie

I did it in new construction, so the install wasn't too bad. Friggin' deep hole, though. The similar 2-post's are less expensive, for sure. I just found the best internet price I could, then negotiated with McGee.

BTW, if you don't hang out there, GarageJournal.com is a great place to learn from others about this stuff.

Yep, I've read pretty extensively on everything that is out there. I've narrowed it down to one or two if I buy new. Corbet has a used industrial quality 2 poster available here in Denver so thats my first choice if it's in good shape.
