    I have built a few over the years.

    I like to build them with one leg foldable! Two padeyes at the top on a plate that the other two legs are welded to, and a single padeye in the top of the leg. Two pieces of chain back to the other two legs so it won't do the splits on you!

    A double ended frame w a single run connecting the two ends works good. Think heavy duty swing set with casters under the legs. If u wanna make it really useful use a small H beam for the long run at the top. You can use it for an underhanging trolley.

    Do you wish a tripod or a crane? The two are very very different.

    I built 2 tripods for pulling car engines back in my younger days. One for me and one for friends and family. Never saw the friends one again . Mine i just chopped up to get the pipe for another project, it lasted 27 years. I just used 2" pipe with a 3/4" bolt thru the top with somewhat bigger holes in the pipe. It just had a circle of chain to hang the hoist on. Make the legs to suit, mine was 10' tall, somedays i wished they were 15' long...Bob

    Tripod-type Crane

    I would like to build a tripod-type crane where I can hoist what it is I am making using a block & tackle and be able to manuver it. Has anyone built such a product where they could share their expertise? I am seeking to be able to lift less than 300 pounds. The object(s) are 8' to 9' long x 36" wide. Thanks.
Working...
