« Part 6: Crane boom Part 7 of Hydraulic Crane (Toys and Joys) series Part 8: Mistake in drawing 5. Rear cabin. »

Last week I made two hydraulic cylinders. The cylinders should be able to hold the crane boom in position. Therefor I additional made a “clamping” ring from ash. First I tried to do this with a rubber ring but finally I prefered wood.

(I,m making two cranes at the same time, that’s why sometimes you she two cylinders)

Below you can see how it was done.

Thanks for watching.

I love all the details Jan. It is my thought that while we enjoy seeing the final products that it is even more interesting to see the details of construction. Great blog and it’s great to learn some new techniques too.
