After 35 years I have finally found a vertical head for my 1ES, problem is best way to move it about and fit. Most options I have seen, maybe on larger machines is a side mounted crane, but the 1ES seem to have no provision.
I had in mind to bolt a track with traveller, to the ceiling joists but have been known to need to move machines about !!
At 42 kg its quite a lump and don't fancy a floor or wall mounted crane, or buying/using an engine crane.
Best option to me seems to be a cradle with the head hanging from it which is pushed on a track from the table to/from the storage shelf. ?
Am I missing anything, any better ideas.
