  • You definitely need to upgrade to an electric motor driven hoist. X and Y axis and wireless controller.

  • Put a stop bolt or carabiner on the tail end of your hoist chain so it can't "accidentally" come off the spool. Murphy's law you know LOL. Good job!

  • You made a rookie mistake or you didn’t have a torch big enough to cut the plate. You had to weld blocks back in instead of cutting out the shape of the beam¿

  • Maybe cutting a T slot into the inch plate would have been better than the cutout and filler. Just slides on and you have less welds and cuts to do

  • Cody needs a hard hat too if he is under the beam!

    climatixseucheclimatixseuche14 kun oldin
  • I think it would be a good idea to add a piece of steel to the end of the piece that moves ..that wraps around the edge of the stationary piece so that if the trollies fail it doesnt just fall but locks in place till you replace the chinese trollies. Just a safety is all.

  • seems overkill you have all the tools to do it the same. There isnt a man on earth who wouldnt want a over crane trolly thingy. I cant believe how you cut thru that thick ass plate. Again with the plasma cutter. A trolly is any sheet metal or metal fabs dream.5000lbs

    Josh DeVriesJosh DeVries20 kun oldin
  • Did you go back and add more weld to those joints in your 1 inch plate, or did you leave 1/2" wide by 1/8" high MIG beads (!!) holding your beam to that 1 inch plate? no penetration... that thing is gonna fall down and kill someone, probably you.

  • nice work, isn't it required by the state of NY to have it load tested certified. those over heads are specially heat treated. just saying. it requires the weight it can carry posted on the beam.

    Jim VetJim Vet21 kun oldin
  • I love watching Andrew. But this project concerned me. Then I read the comments to see if I was alone in my views. I wasn't. This isn't about the main beam capacity. It is about those welds from those fab'd plates under the trollies, as others have said. I thought I would have had the main beam flush between the two. There didn't seem to be room to be on top of them. Then have the trollies hold a fab'd carriage under the main beam. But then use 7018 rod penetrating into proper bevels & beam and filled using all the passes needed. That beam alone, (cringing) with no load on it, would do horrific damage to anything under it. So, is it me or does the side beams being smaller obviate the size of the main beam? I can't tell if they are. And do they already carry a live load from the roof? If you brought a heavy load toward either end and to either side beam's middle, their full moment mid-span, then their capacity may then become the critical strength. But what a cool shop to have. Almost like heaven. I think you should submit this to an SE to evaluate capacity. Probably cost no more than $500 for a non-stamped consult..

    • Everything is fine, this will never break. Mig welds are stronger.

  • I think there should have been a third beam for it to sit on as there was a fair amount of bounce and it should be more rigid.

  • Andrew! You can hang the hand-driven hoist in series with the electric. Hang it underneath if you need accuracy. Just a thought. And is your wife picking out the music for you? That's great music. Are you picking it or is she. Kudos to whoever is doing it. Great job.

  • Looks good to me, I learn alot watching your channel and I am an engineer. I became one because as a automotive technician I hated half the designs they did; They don't really designed for maintenance or repair. Engineers fail to realize that our customer is not only the consumer but the technicians. The only concern I would state as a weak link would be the welds. The connection of any load bearing member is always a top concern in design because its a high stress riser due to small cross sectional area. Welds also fail, quit frequently due to crack growth around the heat affected zone. Penetration is also another consideration. Only recommendation I would give would be to bevel the plates prior to welding to get more penetration. For what your lifting you should be good, just don't go crazy. Love your videos, keep them coming! Cheers.

  • Why not cut out a T in those plates and slide them on the end of the beam. That things scares the crap out of me as is.

    LunitaLunitaOy oldin
  • I’d say the capacity is no greater than 4t, since the trolleys at the end of the moving beam is 2t each, and you doubled them up. It may be further limited based on the weld of the plate to the beam- where that weld didn’t seem to be beveled?

    Joe GrayJoe GrayOy oldin
    • Alex T No worries- I think we are on the same page. Personally I would not want to mess around with weld joints loaded like that and holding an overhead weight. I probably would have had the steel plate cut on a water jet with an I beam shape that allows the beam’s flange to sit on the plate- the end shape would look vary similar to what Andrew made by fabrication with the gussets, but skipping on the welding.

      Joe GrayJoe Gray28 kun oldin
    • @Joe Gray No. Not sarcastic. Sorry if it sounded that way. I like Andrew's work, but sometimes I have questions as to what he's doing. No biggy. Trying to be funny, I think. The theme in all of Andrew's work seems to be to get it done. He certainly knows more about all this than I do. But comments were coming fast and thick about how it could fail and I was scratching my head also. I'd have preferred a different approach to supporting all that weight.

      Alex TAlex T28 kun oldin
    • Alex T I assume you are being sarcastic- I’m not shitting on Andrew’s work- the work he performs is outstanding. But all things have a rated capacity, and he asked what our opinion was based on the size of the steel beams- I’m telling you it would not be the beams that limit the capacity.

      Joe GrayJoe Gray28 kun oldin
    • Yeah, I agree. That thing couldn't pick up a tuna fish sandwich. Forget a meatball hero. No way. I hope it works though. He's doing his best.

  • Only as strong as the weakest link ...your welds maybe...1-1/2" thick I beam pre heat to 200 degrees backing plates either 5/32 7018 or.068 flux core. all beads tied in.. one big flux core feeder bead as wide as my thumb

    • Beams would bend well before a one of the welds would fail.

    azime osman @ saimonazime osman @ saimonOy oldin
  • Personally, I would have done all of the welding and painting on the ground. Of course, I also would have cut the sawhorse in half, at least once. As far as the amount of weight goes... ...I'm accustomed to getting stuck with the grade school dropouts that the boss could get away with paying crap. And the type of boss I'm accustomed to is worst. So, even If it were my own place I'd still have to admit to myself that I really don't trust anyone with more than a 2 1/2 ton chain fall. I therefore would leave that thing at 2 1/2 tons until somebody broke the chainfall, .... again. Then, I would probably conclude that I shouldn't have wasted the money on over 1 1/2 ton. Sometimes steelworkers just have too much experience for their own good, for me it's all the time. Anybody I could considered a "master" is also somebody who got seriously injured. ....and, believe it or not..."The system" in New York State is so screwed up that you can't trust anyone. The NYS run workmans compensation "insurance" courts ACTUALLY WANT THE EMPLOYERS TO BLAME ACCIDENTS ON THE EMPLOYEES and the unemployment "insurances" we all have taken out of our paychecks ARE NOT ACTUALLY INSURANCES EITHER. "The State" will not let you collect "THEIR MONEY" unless you first sign a waiver that it is YOUR FAULT! So, you are working at the only job you can find and you hear about looking at the broken tools. And that is what broken men look like. Your boss has a right to break them and all that is left is broken ladders and missing eye bolts. Someone knew what happened and decided to leave it a note about who you can trust. (Regardless of what the guys robbing the till over at The New York State offices may think, I watched how he flipped over and then PULLED on that beam and decided that I'd rather not wait for the new guy to show me what the cure for it is. You can't subject your body to either motion for long without falling or bottoming out your spinal cord.) So, when you are working on a job and somebody else "wants your job"...what you have to remember is that you are working with the sorts of people who got thrown out of grade school. If somebody decides he feels like dropping a brick on you head there isn't any such thing as a State government who is going to prove it is his fault...bosses included.

  • The weakest part of that assembly is probably the plates holding the trollies to the crossbeam. I think proper spec is to notch out the profile of the I-beam, fillet the edges, slide the brackets onto the I-beam, and then weld them on. I'd be curious to know how well those welds penetrated.

  • Curious as to why you didn’t cut out the wide flange shape out of your plate then you wouldn’t of needed to make gussets back the web also it would hold itself in place without just hoist up to the trolleys and bolt it up and weld your plate out, cool set up I like how simple it is

  • Jason couldn't be more right!! Downhill welds on 1" plate with MIG???? ANY structural weld HAS to be uphill to be safe, downhill MIG welds are just one long cold lap weld (especially on thick plate) and should NEVER be trusted to bear any amount of weight!!!!!! They are more like hot glue just sticking to the surface of the steel and NOT penetrating it AT ALL. If you value your life you should redo those welds!!! If a MIG machine is all you have at least use flux cored wire and weld FROM BOTTOM TO TOP!!! AFTER grinding out those useless welds (and remove all mill scale)! You should really take a welding course at a local community college, and if you did the teacher should be fired. This coming from a professional certified structural welder with thirty-five years of experience. I'm NOT exaggerating, your life could be seriously in danger, welds like those fail all the time.
