A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

Aren't energy consumption and computers supposed to make life less stressful?

If you are not having fun then you are doing it wrong.

After mocking up a rendition of a round pivoting door and a square swing out door I came up with a countermeasure to the original problem.

The issue was vector angle too high. Look at the picture in post# 91 (thanks digr) you can see the lever which swings on an arc is not lifting the door straight up. The binding also occurred as the door approached the top as the vector angle increased in the opposite direction.

The solution was to turn the door upside down and add a link between the door pin and the lever. Increasing the distance between the pin and the lever reduces the vector angle, no more binding.

I turned it over to do some final welding. This thing is finally ready for paint, yay!!!

I never thought I would be spending two shop seasons building this thing. This project evolved far beyond my original concept. I’m still not done adding to this contraption as I plan to make a flat bed attachment with some unique features later. I suppose it would be prudent to change the title to something like multifaceted material transporting device.

A curious question as I would like to know as well.

I am reasonably good when estimating weight so I’ll give one here in pounds.

Box with tailgate 450
Trailer frame with mast, winch, battery and axle with wheels 400
Swivel caster with hub and wheel 400
Concrete funnel 50
Quick Attach mounting plate with integrated stand (not shown yet) 100

My thoughts were about 1,000, so we were pretty close. A little off from the starting design that I guessed at 400 lbs.

I sandblasted the trailer frame and hoist structure parts. I will prime and paint them today using Shop Line paint from PPG. This is a lower cost automotive single stage urethane. It was about $60 for one quart. If it performs reasonably well I will use it more often as it is half the cost of the DCC paint.

The Shop Line JAU sprayed about the same as DCC. The Cat yellow color covered well with two coats over. a dark red primer. It firmed up overnight enough to handle without leaving very noticeable fingerprints.

The JH6670 hardener was $26 for 1/2 pint, significantly less than the DCX61. Time will tell how tough this paint is.
