Moving Heavy Things.

WoodenBoat Books, 11/01/2004. Item #20950
ISBN: 0937822825

From the Publisher: The almost forgotten craft of shifting
large weights with brains instead of engines. Beginning with practical rules for
moving like "Get the Ming vase out of the Room. All the way out," and "What goes
up comes down heavier." This is a fascinating description of applied physics in
the real world. If you move engine blocks, concrete mooring sinkers, or nothing
heavier than this book from table to lap, you'll enjoy the encouraging narrative
and the precise drawings. Not everyone moves coffins with marbles or sheet steel
with baseballs, but you might very well find an idea to help you move Uncle
Harry's monstrous bathtub out of the basement, or a reluctant oak stump out of
the yard.

From Builders Booksource: This is such a great little book! If you build, you need this book! It
will save your back, $$$, and aggravation!
