Rehabilitation for a Murderous Lift

Troy had the drywall lift put back together, but then when he went to use it he found out that the cables were twisted. They got in a real bind the first time he tried to use the lift. frustration set in

He then worked on it some more, taking it apart and reassembling it. Fortunately he only had to do the upper half which was easier than the bottom half. So if he had to screw up, he did it right. When he got it put back together (again) he found out that it was about one inch short for the ceiling. So now there are some 1x2s on top of the 2x4s that were already there. He also took the precaution of marking when to stop turning so he won't crank too hard and pop the cable ends off (again).

On Sunday, he did manage to use the lift to put up three sheets of drywall. Progress may now continue.
