Hammerhead Crane

Built by Eric Smith in September 2010

A hammerhead crane featured on early covers of Meccano instruction manuals and nut and bolt tins.

The controls are two crank handles in the base. One raises and lowers the hook via two contrate wheels and an 11½" rod. The other one traverses the jib with a cord around one 8" and three 1" pulleys.
