Hey Gang, I am new to this site. I am a TD for a small theatre in Utah. I grew up here and went to the Utah State University. I have been in theatre for over 25 years. Yes I am an old fart. But I found this site doing some research on inexpensive ways to build a lift for my trap door. If you have any good ideas let me know. One thing that I have learned in the theatre is you have to peg, borrow and steal sometimes.
