A-FURNACE PART 30
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.
