Hi Gentles

Some more cutting, drilling and grinding. A few measures by eyeball...

Tomorrow a few more rods will be burned.

Slowly we will get there!

Stay safe.

Hi Gentles

Well, steel took its place in the jig (the wall and the floor with a bubble level, and a few sharps of wood to made all square).

A few knee calculations, and a fast read in NASA's welding book (dindnt work, or my reading couldnt get it). I made Stef's (dieselspaner) way: weld, angle grinder, weld again, a soft touch with angle grinder, and voilá! if not, repeat cicle!

After being satisfied, got supper.

Some pics for our members.

And, please stay safe.

Ps: beam will be also 3" tube thicker wall, with a 2,5" thicker wall tube inside to reinforce (both 2m length). I'm expecting to lift my 12/2 with this crane. Any thoughts will be appreciated.

Hi Bruce

Don't idolatre Butch, He's just an old guy wom thinks know some stuff.

But a WIS (means well informed source) told me this kind of fly balance by eye ball were passed to him by his grandson (belive me), and his grandkid said this will only will work just in one axis (say X), but you can have an inbalance in Y axis (dont ask me what is it, because I only got elementary school), but for low rpm it will work.

Well, so far some of our members said it works, so maybe it will work also with you.

Stay safe.
VP  ;D ;D ;D

PS: by the way Bruce, how do you call that fly?

Hi Gentles

6 inches casters already arrived from China... and they sent wrong wheels, in the right fork.

Fortunately I have a spair pare of "really" 6 inchs wheels (from spain), and changed them. Later ill see what to do with wrong ones!

Now I have to get a hard wood to make trolley for Petter 425xxxxx, with generator.

Lets see how its goes!

Meanwhile Im making a A frame crane, or Gantry crane!

Stay safe.

Hi Gentles

Maybe you already had being in this mile stone! Seen an add with a Lister CD, made contact with seller but didnt reserve it (sometimes sellers are twisted minds) near my village (30km far) and tell him id make a visit next weekend (mean last weekend).

Filled wallet with some bills, and got there. A phone call and he said engine where gonne day before. Damn!

Now the buyer gave it a jetwash and put it again on add, 3X price he paid. and doesnt know what engine is! Damn, Damn, Damn!!!

See pic of seller, and now pic of buyer.

Damn, it would be already disassembled down stair, and next week it will have MBG fresh paint. Damn, Double Damn......Damn.

Stay safe.
