I've just called an electrician to see if they can get me some old braided flex to replace the rubber coated someone fitted, plus replace the motor flex. Its great to have it working - I've c...

Re: Novelty Merchantman Crane ??

The latest Up-date: Well like I said in my last post, it's going to be working by the end of April. Well it is. !!YIPPEE!! I was digging through a mountain of old spares and came across, what I think was a old pusher motor. It looked like it might do my job! So wired it up on the bench to see the RP...

Re: Novelty Merchantman Crane ??

Hi Guys, you have been outstanding in helping me with my quest. There seems to be the general consensus that a 110v will do - so looking down those lines, not only here in the Good old UK, but now I've got friends far and wide scouting for me too (more Christmas cards on the list).

Re: Novelty Merchantman Crane ??

That's the kiddy, is that in one of your machines? I even have the original wooden block, and the nuts!! I think the 110volt is going to be my only option. I'm sure at least I can keep looking. As soon as I'm running I will post again. It's been great hearing from all, and THANK-YOU all very much, M...
