Mike, do you have a "guesstimate" for the load capacity for FRED, a.k.a. 1015?

10-12,000. Maybe a slight bit more. Our current equipment should be about as heavy as we should go. But, if we decide to go heavier, we can always make new spring hangars to fit the heavier springs. Or, if we omitted the sprongs all together, we could double the weight. The bearings, if I remember, are rated for 10,000 each.
