I thought that I told you about a drip pan-�"get one at a auto parts
You will find a hole that goes through the press back by the air pump,
if you get a big piece of pipe (that fits the hole...) long enough to
span the new drip pan and maybe a foot on each side. You then, using
the pallet jack and 2x4s raise one side of the press about an inch.
Build a support (pile of 2x4s) to hold the pipe and press up. Repeat
on the other side. Now the back of the press should be about one inch
off the ground, Now go around front and with the pallet jack and some
2x4s lift the front of the press, being careful not the damage the
counter. As a matter of fact, be very careful and make your piles very
The pipe could be the kind that they use for poles for cyclone fences.
When you get each side up, I suggest you slide a thin board under each
side of the press as a safety. You don't need to build a pile of 2x4s
in the front, just let the pallet jack and 2x4s hold up the front.
When everything is stable, slide the thin boards out and slide the pan
in. Then let down carefully. You should put little pieces (maybe 3 or
4 inches square) of chip board in the corners to level the press (not
so important to be level), just be sure that it isn't rocking back and
forth or side to side...

Our little shop recently added a 10x15 Windmill and I had the riggers
install it directly onto the floor and remove the skids (I'm short).
Then, a few days later I read the manual and discovered that Heidi
needs a drip pan. Naively, we left it that way and, as you can
imagine, the floor is now an oil slick.
Any ideas to get a drip pan under there without spending $450 to have
the riggers come back out with a hoist? I have at my disposal two
husbands, one J-bar, two fixed axel skates, and one pallet jack plus
