    Nice tool. How much did this tool cost you? This beats having 3 lazy
    helpers watching me cut each sheet. i could fire them, and make a huge
    profit.

    I just finished framing a 600 Sqft ceiling but couldn’t lift and attach
    them to the wall too heavy! I was looking for something like this tool to
    help me lift it, I wish someone posts its name so I can look for one on
    eBay or elsewhere.

    you know if you put the hooks on the open side you can use the lift to
    press panel against adjoining board

    thanks for the comments, its a very good machine, not as fast as a good
    helper. If you have the time and not used to lifting sheets over your head,
    you will be glad you rented it

    How come you didn’t use glue and then screw? I thought you were supposed to
    glue the rafters first.

    lifter made by Tel-Pro, it is the best one that I know of,cost about $1100
    there are other ones that are cheaper, but like the saying goes, you get
    what you pay for

    Yeah, try loading the 8′ doubles. I watch the guys deliver and they toss
    the 16′ sheets around like they are paper in 5/8.
