    WOW that is quite a cannon indeed!

    My ULF scissor lift ver 2.0 is making progress - I ordered a 1/2 acme/jack screw. It's a 36 in. rod, and it was delivered in an ** 8 ft ** cardboard tube.

    Update: 1.5mm Pinhole is on order, I have smaller

    Ordered glue and long clamps

    as usual I try to do 2 things at once

    Adding a bellows I have, to give more options 10X10" 40" extension and rear 16X16" Removable, so at least 60"

    Couple days after I shot pics of the Box on my porch the gruff guy across the street dropped in for a chat.

    Took him 5 years. A prison guard hoping for pension in 8 years.

    We have a bit in common.

    His divorce is now much quieter, his 2 fine boys are very polite

    Landing gear, moved camera forward to make room for the drop in basket

    Big knobs on top for safety

    Bottom feet have for holes Earth screws, aka 8" lag screws

    I would like to find unlocking 1/2-13 nuts that open and close---aka QR

    I saw them long ago

    ...could you use adjustable length hiking poles, with their quick release locks?
