We worked hard to get the crane finished on time, in total it spent 5 months in the workshop. The crane was painted orange as it was restored to the last known working condition. Other last minute tasks carried out before the crane left the workshop were to fit the hand spliced metal rope, add oil, grease various parts of the crane and a final check and tightening of the nuts and bolts.
The completed crane looked very impressive sitting “proud” on the workshop floor.
Apologies but we have been a little slow updating the blog.
