Paramount ME: "lock during transit" ?
Posted 08 September 2012 - 11:58 PM
Does this mean that the worm should be engaged during transit so much so that there is no give whatsoever? Or does this mean something else?
More specifically, in my case I'm rolling the mount in and out of the garage. The surface it rolls over is exposed aggregate and is not the smoothest of surfaces. I do hear some clanking when rolling across this surface and I suspect it is unhealthy for either springs or worm gears that are getting smooshed. What is the recommended practice for this type of movement?

Alrighty. In the case of a bumping move about 20 feet, it seems outrageously dangerous to disengage the worm with 100 lb of counterweight and 100 lb of equipment sitting on it. The rope idea might be something I could do but otherwise it seems untenable. I was thinking even to maybe buy some plywood and roll it out on that since it would be a substantially smoother surface. Any other thoughts?
instead of plywood, what about masonite? smoother surface, won't curl up like plywood, and probably a bit less expensive...and a little easier to pick up.
