Drywall deadman tool

Does anyone know of a tool that will allow you to hold a sheet of drywall up at an angle and raise it up to the ceiling rafters.

The lift is definately the way to go. I once rocked a vaulted ceiling that varied in height from 8' to 12' with 12' long sheets and did it all by myself.

Bruce, I would brag about that for a long time. I can't see myself loading 12' sheets onto the lift without snapping one.

All you have to do is tip the part that holds the sheet so it's nearly vertical, place the sheet on it, and then pivot it back to horizontal. The 12' piece is a bit heavy, but that was back when I was young & stupid!
