Larry Worley’s Failed Tower Crane

Larry writes: About a month ago, I was almost finished with my Tower Crane model when a tornado blew through and destroyed it. Judging by the condition of the boom, you can see that the damage from these tornadoes can be fast and severe. Truthfully, I think I should have paid more attention in those anger management classes. The thing is still lying out on the patio, rusting up and I could care less about it or the parts that might be salvaged. Watch that temper guys.

Larry confesses: As you can see from what little is left of the tower crane, it was pretty complicated. After about the millionth try to get the trolley to travel up and down the boom smoothly, I just lost it. On its final run it jumped the tracks and I jumped its tracks!
