hello chaps

one of our club members has started this project while in confinement at home, a port crane for the river's harbour!

the pics show how this will be developing, the differents parts are held together with tape, the screws are also temporary

it has a lot of 3D printed parts, and also some 'emergency solutions' with what is available in his house. He is a gardener, so he has this concrete protection of a sprinkler and will use it as a base for the crane. This part will be fixed to the dock, so he thought, what to use as pivot for the turret crane? here you are what he has found...

Image

a cap designed and printed so the can has a tight fit on the hole

Image

the mechanism of an ikea dishes rotary platform will do the job to rotate the crane

Image

Image

Image

the workers building the crane arm

Image

Image

also the crew's room walls

Image

Image

the roof

Image

the stairs

Image

Image

Image

the room structure

Image

Image

Image

Image

the crane linkages

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

some more general views

that's all for now!

he is thinking in motorize the crane, for rotation, elevation and also for pulling the hook. If not immediately, in the future...

i'm impatient to see this thing on the docks!

hi guys

a few pics of the crane at the Panzodrom, in the same location where it will be installed once finished

you can't imagine the state of the Panzodrom, it's awful, it has disappeared under wild weeds, we will have a hard time trying so eradicate all this without touching our own sown and raised plants... :/ :wtf:

Maybe try some Vietnam era, get a friend with an RC airplane, fill it with Agent Orange.... Cancer might occur...


But really, the work and design of the crane is amazing!

well, there are a lot of species under the 'jungle' that we have planted there and have taken care of for years, in any way i will lose them without a fight! so no chemicals allowed, i'm afraid

i will pass your comments about the crane to the guy that is building it :thumbup: :thumbup: ;D
