What does the name "Jib" in Jib Crane stand for? The "Jib" is the projecting arm of a Crane. Jib was probably from the shortening of the word Gibbet, which was an upright post with a projecting arm, used for hanging bandits in the old West (who knew?) How long has Nebraska Hoist & Crane been in business? Since 2004.
Can I weld on a crane? Not recommended unless you are experienced in what you are doing. A stick welder builds heat rapidly, which could weaken the integrity of the crane. If you must weld, use a MIG welder, and "stitch" weld, using short beads that can cool before welding the next "stitch". Best Solution: Call Nebraska Hoist & Crane Service Department at (402) 614-8011 for advice before you do anything!
