Attic elevator MkI/modII

-- Sent from my Palm Pre

You will note the much more elegant design with two cables spooled onto the same drum. Cable separation is maintained via a guide rod assembly (the cables don't ride it, but bounce off when they try to get together). The end uprights have been grouped into sub-assemblies, and the hoist frame has been reconfigured so that it gives more even lifting, but reduced capacity with the same hoist.
