    You've provided too much information. I just don't have time to engage it all.

    Thanks Jack, you've already been more engaged than I expected from anyone. All I'm doing here is sharing my excitement over acquiring a product line for a proposed corporation. Any entrepreneur would understand.

    I mailed that model chart this morning, then came home and realized that I have actual models now, so I need to name them. Soooooooooo, in reverence to Henry Ford and all classic beginnings, I have given the 3 models their own names...

    Don't get me wrong, it's all very interesting but I just don't have the time to reset my brain. I'm in the process of going over the edits of my next book from my publisher which comes out in paperback in July. I have a mission trip at the end of June and i'm working on a new book, all at the same time. My brain is at 120% now. There is no more room left.

    check out the completed product line:

    here's the speed and run time chart on Model D (I definitely do not expect to see this model built in my lifetime)...

    this chart picks up where the 3" drum rim model left off:

    you know, 2 of my 3 brothers have the degrees in electrical, the other one has a MBA... no man builds a corporation alone, but this immediate family has built a half dozen corps already. I appreciated the heads up that the solar panel would be pushing AC at the power controls, so we will need to convert that to a DC recharge for the batteries. I am hoping to drop those headaches on my brother... but I make sure the technology is available before I incorporate it into my design. I've done a lot of commercial electrical work myself, but I have no experience with DC... although those are my initials DC, and funny enough, the brother I'm hoping wants to jump onboard and do the electrical for me; his initials are AC. We was just born to do this hoist, that's how I see it. But there's a lot of good reasons to not want to do this idea; I understand that, it would be downright strange if both brothers and my friend were all to say, "I'm in"... especially seeing as they are all in their low to mid 60's, with families to look after. That's life.

    Model B: this is a 1000 meter hoist with 6" drum rims; it wraps 13 levels of 7/16" wire rope. I do the same hoist with 3/8" wire rope for Model D.

    So, I finally ended up with just one hoist; what will I do with all those copies I made of that cool looking chart for hoist models?

    this is the final choice:
