Summer is usually pretty slow with lots of distractions, but I did find some time to work on the LTM1800.
I worked on the Derrick mast. This set http://www.flickr.com/photos/dickvandamme/sets/72157623977660719/with/4622268767/ shows the LTM1800 with Derrick mast.

This is the butt being out together:

These are the sides of the 14 m middle piece:

and this is the setup for milling the chords:

Sure can appreciate the work going in to building a tapered boom section.

Very nicely done Kerst.

Kerst,

That is a lot of bevel cuts for just the upper piece of the derrick boom. Are you using some type of jig to hold the pieces as you solder them together?

yes, I am using the jig that you can see in post 818.

I just turn it to get the angle I need. It works pretty well.

Getting there. All the soldering is done, just some cleanup and finishing off some details on the derrick mast.

A month later!
After the soldering of the derrick mast was done, I cleaned it all up and started on all the hardware, like sheaves, pendants, etc. that was quite a bit of work, not difficult, but fiddly. I made the pendants of 1/8” square steel bar with the ends brazed on. Most of the hardware is done and soon I will be able to put it together and try it out!
Here some pictures:

I always get very excited when I see an update to this post Kerst! And it seems a new milestone will soon be reached when you can start putting it together. That I can't wait to see!

Looks amazing so far and is one of the best, long standing threads on this forum in my opinion!

I had enough time this weekend to put it all together. There are still quite a few details to finish, but this is a great opportunity to make a list and see what needs to be adjusted or fixed.
