Last week, a friend who is moving house asked me if I would like a fly press. Of course I said YES.

So, on Tuesday evening, after taking off as many bits as possible, the two of us just about managed to lift the lump of cast iron into the boot (trunk) of my sidecar.

Wednesday morning I contemplated how I was going to get the thing out, thinking I might end up still having it in the boot for last weekend's camping trip. affraid

Then a flash of inspiration, tie two ladders together to form an 'A' frame, and use my ¼ ton pulley block hoist for a vertical lift. cheers

Whoopee, success, and no strained back!
Paul.
