No thanks, those tapes won't work in my Betamax.

I don't know why, I just feel more comfortable lifting things over my head when I know they're supported by something from Harbor Freight.

I was looking for a good supplier of jacks and hoists. Thanks for the recommendation.

For some reason this end of the thread reminds me of Shakespeare's line, "Hoisted by his own petard".
Actually it was "Hoist with his own petar" but never mind.


Illustration of a petard from "Sketchbook on military art, including geometry, fortifications, artillery, mechanics, and pyrotechnics"

"By securing the device firmly to the gate, the shape of the device allows the concussive pressure of the blast to be applied entirely towards the destruction of the gate. Depending on design, a petard could be secured by propping it against the gate using beams as illustrated, or nailing it in place by way of a wooden board fixed to the end of the petard in advance.[2]

In medieval and Renaissance siege warfare, a common tactic was to dig a shallow trench close to the enemy gate, and then erect a small hoisting engine that would lift the lit petard out of the trench, swing it up, out, and over to the gate, where it would detonate and hopefully breach the gate.[citation needed] This procedure might go awry; the engineer lighting the bomb could be snagged in the ropes, lifted out with the petard, and consequently blown up.[citation needed]"

Which reminds me of the present day and a bunch of "short sighted narrow minded hypocrites" sitting on a tea cup full of gun powder. Hope they had a blast and enjoyed their ride.

Hmm, kinda looks like they could just walk around the side of the fence to the right...

Or, if they didn't drink so much mead, they could scale the massive... 4 foot fence.

But the fence is pointy, Paul-Marcel!
