What type of four post hoist are you looking to build? Car hoist or engine hoist?

I'll be putting a 4 post hoist in my new shop once the house is complete. Won't be building it though. I've looked at about a dozen different manufacturers and most are made in China. Their quality is "OK" but for my money I'm probably going to go with a Backyard Buddy or one of the other US made units.

If you buy one at a show (like the NSRA Nats) you can usually save several hundred bucks or get free shipping.
