« Part 10: Threaded shaft explained Part 11 of Hydraulic Crane (Toys and Joys) series no next part

It was a beautiful and sunny day, and that came out well. I was ready with the small parts and also the glue work was done and in the backyard I could start with the varnish work.

I hope that at the end of this week I can post it as a project.

Thanks for watching

You have the patience of a saint. If I was working from plans that I had to check every little thing they said … I’d go nuts and give up way too soon.

Looking forward to the finale’

Dutchy, you’re almost done and they are really looking quite good. What wood did you use for the beds and is it a single piece? I will be a bit sad to see you finish these. Hope you have something else planned.
