Thanks top, I was starting to get a "crick" in my neck trying to view them correct side up! Tim, are you still employed by that dog food company? I have been away awhile and dont know what you have been up to lately.

Try holding it horizontally. Most of my pics and movies are "landscape" mode.

4x8x3/4 plywood weighs 70 pounds. Slides up an extension ladder okay if you turn the cleats down. I can do 3 to 5 sheets in a day, so you should be able to do 10 easy nuff, youngin. Just take it easy, and put a cleat on the edge of the roof so it don’t slide off.

+1... 4'x8'x3/4' plywood is a PITA by your self but a little easier than the 35' sheets of r-panel I'm having to do by my self, but once I got one up on the roof I use my vise C-clamp to hold it while I get up there to set it and screw it down.

But regardless if you have any "Wind"take extra care even with a 4x8 sheet of plywood...

Keep making progress. And if you figure out how to get people to show up to help, let us know.

I have actually had good luck getting help when I need it. I have cast a lot of bread on the water too, so to speak..... I view working on other's projects, not just an opportunity to socialize, but as a test. The ones who show up to help me after I helped them can usually count on my help in the future...... Those whose cats regularly have puppies on the day I really need a hand get far lower priority next time.

I hear you. The worst help or no help I have gotten from others is usually from family members even though I went out of my way many times in the past to help them out! Now days when the family members ask for help I tell them to check with some one else as I "dont" have anymore welding machines, electrical tools, plumbing tools, wood working tools etc. My younger brother was the worst! His son, my nephew and godchild was next in line in the ranking of the worst!

I help people that help me,always have,always will.
I have helped lots of people once,and when i needed them and they were not available i was done.

Having said all that,i would go help Tim with his building,but my busy season is coming up soon and my days will be full until March.
PLus my shoulders are shit and all i could do is drive equipment or bbq or something!https://www.shopfloortalk.com/forums...lies/devil.gif

I think Tim would help me one day,if i helped him.
