    I decided this morning that I needed a winch cable ball-hook this morning, to go on the end of my new winch cable.

    i'd say an excellent way to spend a sunday!!

    Sundays i go out for breakfast, then enjoy comming back and again working/tinkering away at some project. Listen to a decent radio program , and just take my time.

    Your'e hook looks great!! Thanks for the update.

    Are there plans to add a second winch drum (and associated cables and rigging), to control the raising/angle of the boom arms?

    No, not really. I could, but this donkey has sucked up enough of my time and energy. I am almost ready to set it up on a shelf with the rest of my "Dust catchers" and move on to something else.

    When you started this you said you would not be making a scale reproduction, but as a representative model you've done a fantastic job recreating the essentials. Your best effort yet for both complexity and finish.

    I still think there's a Snow engine in your future

    Arrrgghh matie, nice 'ook! And if you DO decide to crochet some knickers from that satin sash cord, please don't post it. Here, anyway. That, sir, is quite a remarkable effort. Thank you for sharing it with all us wankers.
    I'm here hoping to advancify my smartitude.

    I think my Donkey may have found its permanent home!!! When a project moves off the corner of my work desk and makes it onto a shelf, thats a pretty good indication that I've worked on it enough.
