Re: Roof lifter

Steve that's a great help, yes I did look at Shelly's and noticed the distance, I can also see that if you were using it to dismantle the Portafold once the end walls are up it would have to be quite a wide hook carriage to keep the pole straight, Also considered a plumbers tube to temporary fit to ...

Re: 1972 Portafold for sale

We are very pleased to say we have agreed with Sue to be the new owners of her Portafold, hopefully with the next couple of weeks it will be at home with us in Iver.

We both look forward to having it .
