My inexpensive roll-up door opener

I'm sure those of you who have metal buildings know how expensive the roll-up door openers are. I got the cheapest Genie regular garage door opener I could find for $125, and figured out how to make it work on my 7'x10' roll-up door. The extra stuff I needed cost less than thirty dollars, plus several hours of making the parts and putting it in place. Everything bolts on with the door in place, so it didn't require any permanent modifications to the door or heavy lifting.

It's been working for several years with no problems, so I'm calling it a success. If you're handy with tools, it's a pretty neat project that'll save you several hundred bucks.
