A great thread, i myself have been tempted a few times by these items like cranequi and crossbows. I never saw such a cranequi from the inside, thank you so much for sharing
I also noticed the little dimples on top of every 'tooth' on the leteral bar, was this purely decoration or had it some kind of function (like lubrication?)
This friend isn't by any change called Crossbow??
(my deepest congratulations to him, his collection and the amazing scenery whatever his name might be
