Every Garage Could Use This DIY Custom Shop Crane

Posted by: Jesse Kleib on May 27, 2021

If there’s one thing to be learned with lots of experience in the shop it’s that there is a proper tool for every single job. Now, sometimes, perhaps that right tool isn’t something that’s affordable. However, over time, someone who wants to be good at wrenching will eventually get together just the right set of tools to accomplish anything that’s in front of them.

This time, we dig into a piece of machinery that is a little bit more on the complicated side. This isn’t exactly something that just anybody would have in their shop. However, the ability to have your own personal crane is something that could come in handy across a variety of different occasions.

This is especially true for somebody who might be doing something like lifting engines in and out of cars. The strength of such a tool and the convenience factor could really be enough to make a mechanic drool over the idea.

While the crane would be incredibly nice, though, obviously, not only is someone going to need the space for it. They’re also going to need the cash to go out and buy one. At the end of the day, the convenience factor is real but the price factor can be even more real.

This time, by following along with the video below from Fireball Tool, we get to see behind the scenes as a custom unit is built that not only circumvents that entire price obstacle but also creates a unit that’s customized for the exact application.

With the help of Fireball Tool, we get to see behind the scenes how exactly a shop crane can be created. The fun part here is that we don’t have to take all that time learning how to do it and instead get to see the entire thing unfold in the span of only eight minutes!
