Roland that last addition is fantastically realistic. I love the marks on the bench top.

Thanks Frederic.
I wanted to build the donkey being repaired, but not completely torn down. I also couldn't see Jerry lifting the drum so I am building him a small A frame hoist. This is as far as I am at this point.



Back when finished. Roland

Roland,

Very realistic. Good job in construction and doing all the different finishes: wood, metal hoist, slightly rusty iron etc. Where do you get these ideas?

After spending much of the weekend walking a rail trail, mowing the lawn, then mowing again to pick up the clippings and catch the bits still standing up, trimming shrubs, staking irises, and washing windows, I can appreciate anything that will save the back.

Mike

Thank you all for the comments. Most of my ideas just come from thinking about how to solve the problem. Then I googled "antique hoist photos" That gives me hundreds of pictures. Then to the parts box to see what I can use to make it. Same for the winch.

With not much to do today I finished the A frame. As usual I have more ideas than space to put them in. The box on the floor will hold all the parts not used because of the drum being removed, something I do in real life or I would loose something.

Terrific work Roland!! Any easy way to remove the top half of the bearing pillow blocks? Those would have to be removed before the drum could be lifted out. T'would makd for another fabulous detail, and provide two more pieces for the parts box.
