Must be so nice having a lift for working on cars. If I didnít have the boat stored yr round in the 3rd bay I might consider one.   

I hate dirty garage floors so a couple times a year especially after winter Iíll break out the hose and zipwash soap n scrub it down.   Ickys to me are salt and dirt the cars track in.

Thanks all.   The round chain saw ones will do for some of what I need to do first.  I have a part that is worn so  I have to fill in with weld then file out to original size  The small chain file size should be about right.   Gut others will need to be the bigger size, and some flats.   Redoing old hit and miss engine parts.

 Price Gouging is against federal law here Shawn' Yes it's done here but not as much as you think. On Ebay, the price usually not that much out of line. The price is bolstered by the shipping. Where else can you pay $5.00 foe something and pay 30 or more for shipping. I see noyhing changing, it's always been "Let the Buyer Beware"

They make top blocks already set up with the studs mounted that fit the bases.  Again $$ but good to get ideas from to copy.   Thats why I decided to make my own riser for my 4th axis rotary.  They get like $750 for the thing

Almost like the D1 cam lock lathe chuck mount. Fancy. I'm sure certainly expensive. But I suppose I'll see how much time off I have in the coming weeks... Might wind up with a lot of spare time to make neat stuff
