Cap! It's been a while. I PM'd you to catch up on what you have been up too.


Millertime, it is the Sherline mill. It, and the Sherline lathe come in handy to make shavings out of expensive stock.


Speaking of #25. I think I absorbed too much of it while designing the truss. I'm back on the drawing board to increase the lattice work between the main chords.

Hi there. Look's like a cool project you have started. How big is this crane going to be as that bit of lattice boom look's big.

cos918, That is not going to be the boom. It is the truss that holds all the barge segments together and will be part of the superstructure.

Pops, You ought to start advertising your lifting services now, you'll have some good jobs lined up by the time you are finished! That bomb would make a good project ender, if you get tired of a build just toss your bomb on it, I'm glad that the O'Bannon did not end that way. Cap

Thanks Kmot.

On vacation this week but the Grandson is on his way here, so I won't be working on this project, after this morning, for a little while.
