Larry Worley's Erector 1934 No. 6 Portable Derrick

Larry writes: "While attempting a restoration of a 1934 No. 7 set (I think), I kept noticing this little crane model in the manual. I kept putting it off, but it bugged me so bad that I just had to build it. It is a simple and cute model. (Can a man say that word when referring to a machine?) It was fun to build and even more fun to play with. And, just to prevent boredom, I installed the electro-magnet. I attached the batteries like saddle tanks to keep that 'cute' look. (Ha ha ha).


I really do enjoy the Crane models of all sizes. Perhaps one day I can make a steam-powered one."
