Certain service calls I have someone else do


Recommended Posts

We do plenty of high rescue work on ropes here on the coastal cliffs of CA, doesn't bother me but we have good equipment and lots of trained folks. I actually really enjoy technical rope work. I believe what that brave soul is using is called a bosun's chair and I thought it was illegal through OSHA but maybe that's just a CA thing... be careful out there.

Ok. I just watched the video and I’m just gonna say, FUK NO!!

i think this is how it would go  at the top.

Hey joe hand me the”insert tool here”.

        I don’t have it I thought you got it.  

 No, I thought you grabbed it. 

        Well we need to fix the flux capacitor. 

I don’t have. Who’s going for it?

About 160 feet up, sign is at 130. I never really did much chair work at all and don't want to start now. Glad I know this guy. Always has his camera with him too.






Admit it Rich-reason you won't do it is because you don't want to spring for the wire rope!!

I dunno if I  have ever mentioned this on here or not 

Im a lift mechanic (elevator technician I think you blokes call them) by trade 

I haven't done this for many years but it allowed the Princess and I to have our start and buy our first farm 

Worked on many high cranes and unusual lifts  ( elevators) some up to 800 feet tall in chimneys on power stations 

I got very use to working at extreme heights and only ever got nervous once that I can think of and that was in a journey hoist like the one pictured fix the antenna above 

My toes were digging into the floor thru my boots and my ass was going 5 cents 50 cents big time lol
