Carrying ladders

Problem:: The job calls for a toolbox and long, heavy ladder. Can you get them both there in one trip? Solution: Get a pair of 1/8-in. welding rods and break the flux off. Bend one end of the rods into a tight s-hook, with the first bend 1 in.

Problem:: The job calls for a toolbox and long, heavy ladder. Can you get them both there in one trip?

Solution: Get a pair of 1/8-in. welding rods and break the flux off. Bend one end of the rods into a tight s-hook, with the first bend 1 in. from the end and the next 2 in. from the

first. Stick the long “tails” down through the top of the toolbox at the back corners, away from the drawers. Hang the ladder on the two newly created hooks at the back of the toolbox and roll on to the job.
