Had a lot a fun building the diesel train so thought I would play with a work car to go with my working engine.
So the railway breakdown crane looks kind a interesting so we’ll see how this turns out.
This is another scratch build from a couple a pictures.
I wanted that same look on the side like the low boy trailer so set up the shopsmith and dadoed out the sides of the base.
But before I could do that I made a new Zero Clearance Table Saw Insert for the dado I just didn’t like the standard insert that comes with the saw it’s just fine for large boards but the narrow stuff I cut needs to be zero clearance not 1/4 clearance on each side..
So here the start to my crane.
Now I need to sit back and figure how I need to do the cables.
Don’t think there’s going to be much detail here just playing around with this one..
