Weight Loss Surgery

Well, I've been harassed about my weight... how can you install elevators? You need to lose weight...
So I finally did it.
I had gastric surgery in February.
So far, I'm down 41 lbs. down and I can't wait to start installing again.

I have three jobs signed for May so it looks to be a good year.

Fun in Ohio

In February, I installed 2 Elevettes in the Columbus Ohio area for the local dealer, A.R. Mellinger... a chain-drive MRL and a 950 Winding Drum.
I learned two things:    The Inclinator dealers I've worked with, are top notch.   Alan Mellinger reminds me of Mike Holmes from "Holmes on Homes"...  very high standards and absolute top quality.
I also never realized Ohio was such a nice place.   Who knew??

Home Elevator Installation 3



Once the rails and cylinder are installed... and the field wiring is done, a sheave (in layman's terms, a pully) is attached to the top of the cylinder.

Then the cables are run from the top of the rail - down under the cylinder - up and over the top of the cylinder sheave - and back down to deadend at the cylinder base. This is a time-tested method of hoisting the elevator. When the cylinder moves up 1', the Elevette will move 2'.

Guides are attached to the wall so that the piston head will remain plumb as it rises.
