Plumb Bob


Recommended Posts

Trev, I have jacked dozens of C-130s and C-141s and never did I ever find or use a plumb bob. I would tie a string on the overhead location and at the bottom a heavy washer, nut or something else slim and heavy enough to hold the string tight without touching the gage by the rail and have one guy watch it and if it got out of plumb he would holler out to the outside jacking crew.....I'm sure there is no Home Depot near you but they have a good selection.
