Yesterday my engine crane showed up, and I had it assembled within a couple of hours despite the lack of accurate directions. There were directions included, but they were for a (substantially) different model. Mostly I used the photo on the box as my guide :)
Once I had the crane assembled, I used it to move the components of my new lathe as I assembled them. By the time I knocked off last night, I had the legs attached to the base, it was positioned in its place, and I had the headstock, tailstock, and tool rest base all installed. I should easily finish assembling the lathe this weekend, including wiring it up. Then it's on to testing!
