    I just had a look on ebay and could only find a s/h one https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Armstron...frcectupt=true
    I have no idea where you would get a new one?

    I'm going to give your idea a go as soon as I have a spare hour or 3. I think my parting on my lathe will be helped from this idea.

    Saying that time wise, I still have new lathe tools in packaging that I bought several months back that need loading into one of my 52 tool holders.
    I am so glad I went overboard when making 46 extras as I still haven't filled them all, but getting close, lol

    PS
    Loved seeing your crane go up and working, my home built motorized jib crane trolley is built and so is the powered slew, just the finishing touches/wiring going on, it's been a long project but have learnt a lot about things I knew nothing about.
    Good brain stimulating stuff.
    Your thread of your progression was really awesome and a massive homeshop crane, the biggest I've ever seen.
    Thanks for letting us guys follow your well documented journey in your life with it, much appreciate being part of it, even if it was only from the sidelines.

    Hey Dave happy to hear that you are going to build the parting tool and i am looking forward to your testing results.
    Thanks also for the kind words, but those are misplaced as you may have mixed me up with steve, oxxandbert, as it was he that
    recently built that nice crane jib.
    PS your pm box is full.
