Man this is going to be one nice crane!!!
Using your sander for a miter saw really gives some clean joints.

Looking Good Dutchy, Going to be a very nice build
I got the rear fenders on today and only then did I realize I have the grain going the wrong way! Not sure what I am going to do about that maybe nothing!
But if I ever build another I can tell you it will be going the other way! Looks not too good.

Nice work Jan. I liked the way you used washers to center the the thinner internal supports. Very smart and easy.

Dutchy I just went out and looked at mine again the extension section you are putting in yours is going to be just awesome. You have just set the bar higher for the rest of us. Well Done my friend.

G’day Dutchy, I am building this crane at the moment, I noticed you have made 4 pieces for the boom, Do I need to make 4? I thought there were only two sides.

You realy have to make 4. Yes there are two sides, but also an upper and lower side, which make 2×2=4. For as far as I remember is a little different between upper and lower side.
