Using Your 3D Printer to Injection Mold Tiny Objects
Hi. Really enjoyed your post. I am considering using your system attached to a counterweight (instead of winch) for my son's "hanging bed".I would install 2 H frames linked also horizontally, the counter weight hidden in one of the H frames, and a bed "floating" up and down. Can you help give any ideas how this would work? How would you increase safety?My majour concern is safety: having heavy conterweights or bed above his play area isnt ideal.

Power Wash Your Records Automatically (Almost)
You might try looking in auto parts stores for finer grits. They wouldn't normally be used for doing woodwork, but they are pretty commonly used in auto body work. 3K or maybe even 4K will likely be generally available. - MichaelS841
Buy a record cleaner/care kit. Use water from your dehumidifier (yes it is distilled) and thoroughly cleaning your record first and foremost. For surface scratches, the new needles will play through them however for scratches that are embedded into the groove, please put a little more wait on the head and hopefully the groove will get reestablished. Important to note that too much weight will further harm your damaged record so use good judgment. - Vinyl_Rickster

Hi BFK, I hope that you are still around this site! As soon as I saw your pulley system elevator and that you are an engineer I thought that I might ping you for some advice! I've been looking around online for a counterweight pulley system to hoist furniture etc. (and afterwards build a dumbwaiter type system) to my newly built home office on the roof and I can't find anything that doesn't involve mechanised options. I want the counterweight to do the heavy lifting without the sound since I live in a house with neighbours right next to me and the only option I have to get everything up is the rather small internal yard - stairs are a no-go: I live in a "protected" house, in the sense that I can't replace the small spiral stone staircase, which, though a very nice feature, is useless to get anything up to the roof except a person! I can't even get a basket of washing up those stairs! So at first I settled for a luff tackle system suspended from a double pipe, which I used which the builders used to hoist cement bags etc. up by hand. It worked fine until they tried to add one extra bag of cement (around 75Kgs I think) and the pipe bowed! It did not break fortunately but after that they resorted to getting an electric winch for the stones etc. While the manual pulley is handy, it is hard work, even with the weight reduced by a mechanical advantage of 3, but there is always the risk of letting the rope go or something happens and then whatever you're hoisting crashes down into the yard and probably right into the well (which is beneath the internal yard)! So now I am thinking of getting permission from my neighbour to install a 3-H or wide flange steel beam (I think they're the same thing) from my end of the internal yard to the other end of the yard (the wall that both my neighbour and myself share) on the roof and then construct a counterweight pulley system. I was also thinking of adding an additional safety rope-type system just in case the primary system fails. The problem is that I don't know how to do this without some proper thought put into it and I have spent every penny I had in constructing the office on the roof with double-glazed sound-proof windows and extra insulation to try and reduce the amount of heat coming into the room (in summer, in Malta, where I am, it can go up to 40 degrees centigrade!).So if you have any ideas, advice drawings, some website I can go to where I can learn about counterweight pulley systems (that aren't for theatres, which is what I found), please write back, or email me directly - firstname.lastname@example.orgI'm going to try and add a few photos to give you an idea of the space we're talking about. The first 3 are from when the builders were using their mechanised one and the last one is the only one I found on my computer that shows my luff tackle, on the very edge of the photo! All you can see in that photo is the pipe and the top two-pulley tackle, which was originally used by the navy. You can actually see the bend in the pipe!Thanks for any help mate!Steven
