    2 Post lift control box

    Thanks for the replies lads. I will say I'd definitely do it if it was just me using it but on reflection and after some of your comments we've ordered a new lift. Not the same and I bet it is nowehere near as sturdy but it's officially safe.

Hilti do some bits they reckon will do it. I bought a “rebar cutter” for 50 quid and it blunted almost instantly. Load of rubbish. I have...
