Remember the days when a counterbalance...

In reply to Mechanical lifting help by Terry A. on July 10th, 2001 07:20 PM [Go to top of thread]

was used for just this purpose?

If you do not or have never seen this device. Its a series of pullies and a rope or metal wire with a counter weight on the back end.

You open the hinged door and the counter weight on the back actually pulls the door open. It would be very easy to construct, would take two pulley's a rubber coated wire, and a piece of heavy suspended metal like a fire andiron, a cinder block even.

Hope this helps.
