I started construction on the skip hoist of this blast furnace.  The hoist is build from a .040 styrene  base - this is a little thicker than I would have liked but I felt it needed plenty of  strength.  I formed the structural framing by using .040x.156  and .030x.188 strip.  Plus I added .060 styrene angles between frames.  I used .100 angle, and .125 I-Beam for the cross pieces.
