Onan: Off topic drum clamp

Last Subscription Date
I recently asked about clamp/brackets etc. for lifting a barrel of fuel out of a trailer. got some interesting replies. Loved the video of a ground crew rolling a barrel of jet fuel out the cargo door of an airplane with a drop of about 4 foot onto an old tire. I dont have a floor crane but do have several block and tackles with good 5/8" nylon rope. anyway I wanted to be able to do this alone if needed without straining anything. I did like suggestion about inviting a buddy or two over and provide beer after drum was unloaded. I opter to make my own bracket and drink the beer. Here should be a couple of pics. Luck to all This shall pass. Hunker down, Ben
