I made this for my 3 year old son who loves the Thomas the Train items. If you know Thomas you may know Cranky the Crane; I based this crane off of that one. The arm swivels 360 degrees and the magnet raises and lowers with the crank. It’s made from various scraps. One day my boy came into the shop and saw a drawing I’d made while planning the gift. He took one look and said, “Oh Cranky; Dad you have to make it!” I told him if he was lucky then maybe for xmas. He got to open it as his early gift tonight and he’s been quite busy with it since. Oh, and if you are still reading this Merry Christmas to you!
