I'm actually thinking of reproducing this Weaver. To make it affordable I'll be using Chinese chain and steel...any takers?

The Weaver hoist does not bother me. As a Boilermaker heavy rigger, you have to trust your rigging and tools. Due to the nature of our business we are under heavy loads all the time. The general rule is to never get under anything suspended on hydraulics. But mechanical rigging such as chokers, chain hoists, com-a-longs, cribbing, chains, ect is OK. Just as long as you know your weight limits and maintain a 5 to 1 safety factor. But I may not be a good example, I have also welded gas tanks. I have welded many gas storage vessels while I was inside them. When working in a refinery, it is a very common occurance to be inside a vessel that had gas, diesel, kerosene, naptha, ect just a few hours before we arrived to fix a leak or other problem. Our line of work requires a very deep trust of your fellow workers or the techs checking the air/fuel level concentrations. Now the fellow sitting under that truck is not one of those guys. He is just an idiot.... have fun and be safe .....
