Just this.



I ground a slot in a bolt and welded a 'T' to it.

Slackmeyer, Hi!

I ***love*** this! Mind if I ask what the chain falls were attached to? I'm guessing a crane lifted it into place and you used the chain falls to adjust for angle and alignment.

For some reason rigging fascinates me.

Enjoy,



Liz

PS: Do you happen to have a website with more photos?

Actually, the chainfalls are all that's holding that stringer section in place. We had a skyline (A cable run over the towers on each side, over the stringers) that the chainfalls were on. We'd lift the stringer section up with a crane just enough to attach the beam clamps for the chainfalls. Then we'd pull it out into place with a cable attached to a mini-excavator.
Here's a better pic of the whole operation:

And here's the center section ready to go out:
