Loading Heavy Sheet Goods aka the ShopBot Salutation!

Sheet goods can be awkward and heavy. Depending on your shop configuration, manually loading even moderately heavy sheets alone can be cumbersome at best. This ShopBot Salutation is a technique which, for me, is the easiest, fastest, and safest way of manually handling and loading sheet goods.

Everyone is different and you know your body and capabilities best. But if you can almost touch your toes and you don’t throw out your back everytime you lift something wrong this might work for you. Keep in mind that, while this technique works well for me it might not be best for you. Practice with light materials until you get the hang of it – and go slowly. Once you do get the hang of it, if you are like me you’ll never go back.

However be warned! You may be laughed at.
