Put a ballast set up together


Recommended Posts

A guy who works for me found these in the scrap yard when he was dumping off...they are elevator weights...about 53 pounds each

Had some Steel channel laying around so I got this made up

And then painted it

Look sort of like the weights that we used to move backstage to counter balance back drops for stage productions.  Slots on the end allowed the cables to pass while they rested on a pulley platform on the middle.
