Looking for ideas- and maybe more!
« on: July 03, 2013, 06:52:32 PM »
Some time ago I found this on the ground at work- its a link from a chain that drives a gantry crane.  Its solid steel and reasonably thick- as you can see compared to my Wenger Swiss Clipper and Fauxton.

My motive for grabbing it was firstly because it's kind of cool and secondly because I thought it would make a nice one piece multitool- although certainly a heavy one!

Anyways I thought it might make for an interesting brainstorm here.  Also if anyone had any specific ideas or desire for making something out of it, when we are done discussing it I could send it on to that person to make their masterpiece.

So.... anyone have any thoughts?  :D

Oh that must be one of the new leatherman one piece tools, I can tell by the rust.   >:D

Leatherman peanut.  One piece tool targeted at gantry crane repairmen.   :rofl:

In case anyone is wondering, this is the kind of crane the piece came from.



Those look like some good ideas so far.

Pity the link pin hole isn't a bit smaller so it could be filed into a 1/4" hex.

You get used to the bits and pieces falling off.  That's why we wear the plastic hats.   :ahhh

I'll have to check when I get to work today, but the holes may be small enough to file into a hex wrench.

maybe cut down a cheap 1/4" wrench and weld it in, and then grinding it back it down into the hole.

I would personaly be much more worried about being the one driving/piloting (due to the lack of a better word) the crane. I would not like to be be up there when my crane is falling apart!  :ahhh

It's only the bits and pieces that fall off.  The frames are pretty secure, otherwise they couldn't lift containers with them.

Had it been some random bits falling off I could agree but this is a chain master link side plate, as in one of the pieces that holds the chain together.  I wouldn't worry about the frame either, I'd worry about about what they are trying to lift with that chain...   :ahhh

That link is just from a drive wheel, not a lifting component.  The worst that would happen is the wheels would stop turning and the crane would get stuck in a line.

Here is the machine this chain link is from. Or part of it anyway. The tire alone is about six feet tall.
