So...if you want one and you can´t find it...make it :-D
|The lifting arm I made a bit smaller than designs I´ve seen on the web. Wether this would effect the balance I´m not sure, but it seemed more logical to have the arm almost directly opposite the longer arm which winds the rope up.|
|No more heavy lifting for this bod. The ropes (left and right) from the supports to the lifting arm are to stop the arm falling forawrds.|
|It works :-D The wheel at the top of the arm is made from two small washers and a piece of biro tube (the bit with the ink)|
|The bolts are made using the heads from pins.|
I tried several methods...luck being one of them until I came up with this;
I´m not 100% pleased with the outcome of this crane. The result is a bit more "live and learn" and there´s a couple of bits I would now do differently ..for example, it´s missing a brake for the "mousewheel" but it will do until I´ve got time to build another.
