Milling Machine Jib Crane - the penguin - 12-23-2012

Its gotten to the point or age, where lifting a 10" rotary table or its 10" chuck, is no longer any joy, so I modified a Harbor Freight pick up bed crane.

Never gave a thought to putting it on the mill itself. Great idea. Nice job on that one.

Wait - are you saying there was a time when you considered lifting such items to be fun?

Nice work on the crane. I've seen a few where people have bolted them to the mill. Makes sense and doesn't chew up other valuable space.
