I am a newby on this forum. I need some advice. I recently bought a used milling machine (1979 Burke Millrite, very nice) it is now in my basement on a wooden pallet. I want to place it on a newly fabricated pallet I made with 3" 3/8" steel angle and plate and 4X4 wood runners, so I can set the machine where I want with my pallet jack. It weighs about 1600#. I will remove the table before I proceed so maybe 1450#. My house is a large 5 bedroom all brick upscale house built in 2003 and in the basement there is a steel beam running approx. 20 under my family room. It appears to be a 10X6.5 beam (I don't even know if that is a standard size). It is only supported on both ends. I want to use this to lift my mill about 6 inches and then lower it again, all in the same place, and as close as I can get to one side of the beam (about 24"). The I beam is lined with wood to mate with the house framing and the only surface available for hanging is 1.5" on each side of the lower flange on some wood that is installed there. My question: how do I design a hanger for my chain hoist to grab the 1.5" ledges (the outer edges of which are 6.5" apart) and connect this to a sturdy hole for my chain hoist to hang on, which distributes this load properly. There is about 3" from the top surface of this ledge and the bottom of the beam. I have metal working equipment and can cut and weld up to 3/8" steel easily. I also plan on supporting the steel beam as close to the mill as I can on the other side with a 4X6.
