    The main traverse is ready to use.

    You can look at my 3d plannings with fusion 360

    you can go round, move, look, special feature is the ability to made an explosion views of the parts. You can‘t save your modifications. So it‘s save. Try it.

     

    Last parts of the traverse are the beamflanges on the bottom.

    It was a good exercise on the roundtable

    Thank you.

     

    Today I’ve  finished the puzzle for the two beams. Some polish and adjustments and then I’m able to lift a bit – or a byte 😀 . We’ll see

    Thank you, Pete.

    Lathe and mill are expensive toys but worth every single cent.

     

    the crane is now roughed up to find lacks of … whatever. But, its ok. All of it 🙂

    Big step is done. The mechanical Part is ready to use. Today I mount the crane to the chassi. I like it. Looks cool and really technical 😀

    After a very nice Holiday in good old england the work on the crane starts again.

    A great problem on these selfmade cars is the need to put the right finish on the many little parts before powder coating, polishing or wathever.

    At the crane I have roundabout 120 tiny things to deburr and grinding.

    After a lot of googeling I’ve found my method to do this things.

    Shortly bought in the web, yesterday a small barrel finishing machine arrived.

    I’m really pleased with my first attempts with this technique.

    Just add special grinding stones, grinding powder, water and the things to be handled in a barrel.

    Put it on the machine.

    Wait.

     

    And wait.

     

     

    And wait.

     

     

     

    And wait 😀

     

    At last the really nice results are visible.

    after

    H08570

    A slight “sandblast”-like surface is done. (With other ingredients in the barrle it should be polished)

    So I’m able to do the hundred little things for the crane in six hours of waiting instead of man hours of grinding etc.

    H08572

     

    P.S.:

    Rumors told me that this technique may be also able for plastics

    What a great idea, and works really well.  It would be cool if you could do 3d printed body parts this way, all the prep puts me off.

    I‘ve found an article about barrel finishing plastics. Unfortunately in german. Maybe Google translator brings a for you readable result

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>90 % is done.</p>
    All? 🙂 things are machined, finished (powder coated or blank) and assembled.

    A first lift test with my D90 was successful.

    A tow truck is on my build list, it’ll look nothing like this as it’s way out of my skill set.

    Finally it‘s done. Yipieeee 🙂

    The crane works fine and driving with load is as easy as always.

    A short clip in action with load :

    My next project is a floating crane and water is unfortunately the wrong medium for this nice forum.

     

    But I‘ll be back 🙂

     

    So long

    Towing works very well. But I need two scalers to be towed. 🙂

     

    thank you for reading.

     

    bye bye
