    I used some hooks screwed on ceiling

    I used that cheap small metal hooks screwed on ceiling for a similar application as well to hang all my rain collecting system... I worked alone. It works, it is easy and dirty cheap.
    All the best.

    We just had a whole floor's HVAC system replaced at my place of employment (I'm a maintenance tech). LOTS of spiral pipe, from 24" down to 4". What you described is exactly how the union tin-knockers did it.

    Well, I have to say the drywall lift worked perfectly. I made some progress today. All of the 8" main trunk is hung. I haven't screwed anything together yet in case I need to make fitting adjustments when hanging the 6" pipe.

    Nice idea with the cradles!

    The most expensive tool is the one you buy "cheaply" and often...
