homemade elevator dangers

Elevator Radio Show 491 – Week 12/27/2017

Never attempt to build or install a homemade elevator lifting device no matter who on Pintrest says it's easy and safe.  These are dangerous and could very well kill you or a family member. You have been warned.

I hope everyone had a nice Christmas.  It was great to see family and friends and by the time Tuesday rolled around it was nice to have an extra day off. It’s a very light show today. I almost didn’t produce it as my computer took about an hour to update this morning but it finally finished.  Also I was a little disheartened at the fact that the number one website link that pulled up in my news collector was that of a bloke sliding down the center of an escalator which should NEVER be done!  I wish that ad revenue and human kind in general didn’t feed the machine like this. Happy New Year, looking forward to the opportunities to make our industry a better one on in 2018!
