Look good, with the crane on the tower. I like the juryrigged feeling of boom extension and A frame, wartime necessity, making do, etc. Would the back of the crane need more counter weight to compensate for the exended reach?

Thanks Rick, Carl, Jerry and Pete.

Ted, thanks a lot for the bold comps.

Bill, thanks. The original pivot point of the crane was in the center of the cab. I moved the pivot point forward to allow the machinery to add weight to the counterbalance. The original counterweight was huge and looked out of proportion.

Frank, in regards to your weight issue with the hook get a split shot weight from your tackle box and squeeze it on the cable right above the hook. You might want to use a piece of wire and extend up thru the shot and make a new loop for the cable for a better look.

Thanks Dave.

Phil good idea, I think I have a couple split shot in my ďhavenít seen for a couple of decades tackle box.Ē

I went to the Center today for Work Wednesday and took a couple more pictures where I had more room.











Here's the "on the workbench" photo with the rail system.
