Hi all, finished the Boom crane and very happy with the results but am I missing something? for the life of me I can not see on the plans if their is any line (Cable) on the centre winch? Any help would be great. Thanks,

Hey Gary. If there is I didn't see it either. I just wrapped cable around it to make it look better. James

I am just about to start my Lattice Boom Crane, if I find the answer I will let you know and if I don't it will be comforting to know I am not the only one.

Hello,
One of the T&J's projects I'm working on is the Lattice Boom Crane,
Could someone who completed this project answer the following.
On sheet 7 the Drum Housing Side (both left and right) has three holes that are labelled 7/32. However, both the Small and Large Hoist drum assembly have a hole that is clearly 1/4 inch. I assume I need to run a 1/4 inch dowel to attach the assemblies to the Drum Housing sides. Or do I really need to find a 7/32 inch dowel?
Thanks!
Mike

And another question-
The drum pawl on page 7 indicates you must make three.
The diagram in the upper left corner just displays one. Where are the other two placed?
Thanks x2.
Mike
I won't even mention why the small drum axle on sheet 7 is a 1/4 inch dowel and the hole it goes thru is 7/32. :(
