    Won't work if you still have the mask that mounts on the frame.

    Re: Makes my job easier

    I have thought about something like this for a long time. Should have acted on it, LOL.

    Might save a few broken sweep parts and light fixtures!

      I like it. Only problem I see is location. This is where all the underground wires come up to the curtain wall.

      When I was doing installation there was another guy that had a portable one that clipped on the front somehow. Thought it was pretty cool…saved a lot of banged up shins, deck lights and torn cloths.

        Yeah - wires.
        There should be enough slack in them to dress them along the bottom or inside of box tubing.
        There's room (about an inch) on the even lane box tubing for wires.

            If your curtain wall is too close to get up from the front now, this isn't going to help.

              at 1st I thought it was from the diomand plate to the wood catwalk....lol that is a good idea, will save a lot of sweep shock mounts and skined knees, as long as your curtian wall is high enough... ours arent.... (I think the designer of our center was 3 foot 5, and 110 lbs)

                I don't know how I was ever able to climb up on these things without hurting myself or the machine when I was pinchasing. Then again, I was 18 years old and 140 pounds!

                  Thats a trouble prone position for a step.
                  every center I've ever worked in had the curtain wall so low that a step like that was definately impractical, not to mention the A&MC box along with scorer interface hardware mounted on wall right above where this step is pictured in your picture.

                  The last center I worked at - we mounted a piece of angle iron on top of the decklight support brackets that we could step up on behind the sweep. Worked great!!

                    Re: Makes my job easier

                    It's a nice idea, though it won't do in our centre because of the position of the A&MC box, the cables, and to some extent the curtain wall (could squeeze under it, but it'd be a tight fit from that position, even for me).

                    I step with my foot across the table gearbox drip tray (which is always dry [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif[/img] ) and the pit light bracket, avoiding the sweep.

                    AmfPro's mention of the extra angle iron on the pit light brackets has got me thinking though - that would be much easier than what we do now. It would have to be higher than the sweep but that sounds do-able.

                    Thanks for posting this Ted.

                      Re: Makes my job easier

                      Years ago I did it this way: when we replaced our machine-mounted masks with lane mounted ones, I attached the old mask support plates (the ones the pipe went through) to the front frame of the machine, one on each side. I cut up the old mask pipes to 60", got them threaded on each end, and used electrical nema box fitting nuts (two on each end) to secure the pipe to the brackets. This pipe ended up just above the sweep bar and was adjustable due to the slots in the brackets.
