And now the Great Experiment begins!

The mount the crew installed Way Back when Tanglewood was being constructed was supposedly sized for a 200 pound dead weight (such as an elk antler chandelier). Now that I've got the ceiling fan down and packed away, the time has come to weight test this puppy. After all, I don't want it to come crashing down, especially if it was to fall ON somebody....that would kill'em lots.

I weighed the chandelier (took a bit of effort) a few weeks back  at 151.1 pounds. As you can see from the reading below, I've got 177.4 pounds of "stuff" hanging from a hook up to that mount as of this afternoon.

So now...we wait. I'll give it a good week or so to see if it suddenly gives way or anything untoward. That would be VASTLY annoying, but better to test it and have it fail this way than to have the whole chandelier come crashing down.

Fingers and appropriate appendages crossed.....

The test weights (I just found a lot of heavier stuff to pile on) are hopefully stable.
