I can't remember who it was who said this worked. IT does. A engine hoist converted into a sheetrock lift. Took about a hour or so to cut and weld up the thinwall tubing. I think it works as good as a real lift, but no rental or returns or hurry.

Shoulder is blowed out. Need a shot in it.
All the overhead work makes me feel old.

We use a thing called a t bar. Wood nailed like a t that you jam under the drywall. I like yer idea. Drywalling sucks and always will. Anything that makes it easier is cool.

Madman:
I am working all alone. I have used the tbar too. Not on this project thou. The worst was working off the 20' aluminum ladder putting up the 12' sections of vinyl siding by myself in gusting wind.

The siding was cold, would break/bust/crack as I tried to cut it below 34 degrees.

most times it is necessary but be careful when working alone Dave, especially up a ladder. Trestles and planks work out faster and safer in the long run. Look after yourself Dave.

Someone on the board mentioned it in passing.

I took it to "use" not my ideal thou. I listen, you can learn from everyone. (open ears and mind)
