hello Steve, well the hoist is up and working.My carpenter has made a seat so no more stairs for me.I have pics of the build so if you want I will email them to you,
robinyatesuk2003@yahoo.co.uk
the total cost was 260 USD, 3/4 of that was in transport and Philippines taxes.The Chinese made hoist came complete and I am very impressed with the quality
