    Hey is there someway I can return to being 7 or 8 years old again? If those had been around when I was a kid I doubt if I would have ever grown past 9 years old.
    Makes my old erectors sets look like so much scrap metal.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Just thinkin' the same thing, and my Ferris wheel and windmill were nothing compared to this, but sure built a lot of cool stuff with mine. After seeing this I'm not sure I ever did get past 9.

    Can't imagine how long it took to figure all that out and the details are incredible! Looks like he 3D printed some of the pulleys from an article I found.

    I might not have made a jumbo crane but I did win a prize for a water mill with a powered wheel, grinding stones, conveyor and a small gantry crane. Unfortunately I don't have any photos.
    But I do still have the certificate.

    There does seem to be a trend at the moment of making giant Lego bricks with 3D printing. Have seen a few cool things including an electric skateboard

    Wow Jon! Hangin' around in a wooden box on 2 wheels with windows...how high up! I've been at 140+ on two wheels but you'd never catch me lookin' out those windows.

    Hi Jon. this Ring Crane is amazing. I saw the crane being used a while back putting a very large yacht in the water. The shipyard being in Europe I Believe. Awesome to see this baby operate. They had to build the pad that would support this behemoth first, then assemble test and wet the hull of that boat. The wheeled system they used to bring the boat out of the shop was impressive also. That crane has no problems finding work as it seems. They are a rare sight to see.

    Too bad the TXDOT won't allow me to construct some special mailbox stand for my mail box. When we first got this place I had made a stand for my mail box complete with a State Highway approved break way signage mount, but the guy from TXDOT who came out to place my mailbox said he couldn't use it. Said he was only allowed to use the mounts provided by the state for liability reasons.
    Mine would have sheared away if it were to be hit causing little or no damage to vehicle or mail box, while the one they provided would merely bend over destroying the pole the mail box and possibly doing significant damage to a vehicle. GO figure.
