Do you know the correct number of that spring? Could it be the same?

The true question is - is there a spring??? Mechanism could simply rely on friction between 3430 and 3431... I see none on all photos I checked!


RE: 674-1 - Forklift and Truck - Magnus Forsberg - 2021-03-28

Yes, it has.
I remember having one as a kid and it was a lot of fun shooting stuff in the air with the fork. Smile 
And the parts have hooks for a spring.

Yes... https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=bb0217&idColor=22#T=C&C=22
And advice in 3430 and so called "3429": 0 // Needs work: Spring attachment
I said so called because imho it's actually 3431!

It's definitely not the same spring.

70181 is from 1983 (for the newer, larger 73367 FORK-LIFT TRUCK), while 74603 FORK-LIFT TRUCK (the one being shown here) dates as far back as 1972.

Plus, I did some measurements for Philo at his request. Smile  

The older spring is actually of a larger diameter, and is shorter.

In addition to the spring, there are connection points missing from the platform and the standard for the spring to attach to.  I gave Philo some reference photos and suggestions (one could "cheat" and just use a cylinder at the top, even though the shape is more like a box with the top two edges rounded off. The peg on the platform is a lot more involved, if one wants to sweat the details.)

Philo is right, this is one of the oldest misnumberings in LDRAW.

3429 is unknown, but definitely not the FORK-LIFT PLATFORM, it should be 3431. (3430 is correct as the FORK-LIFT STANDARD)

Note: 3429 is also definitely not the spring; which would have a 6xxx or 7xxxx numbering, owing to the fact that it is metal.

Hello Takeshi,

Here is the string I made for this nice 670 set. I think it's not too bad... Hope you'll like it Smile

   


.mpd   670-1 - Mobile Crane.mpd (Size: 68.74 KB / Downloads: 6)

Made with LDCad the instructions found on JC Tchang's site about how to make a string with the LS60 LSynth part (inlined in the mpd). And quite some time playing with Bezier curves while taking a real-world knot as a reference...

You'll see I fixed three minor glitches, too:
- two 3020's were inverted among building steps
- the crane was vertically overlapping the truck by 8 LDUs
- the red block was lower than (invisible) ground

Finally I couldn't resist but put the stickers... but of course, thanks must go to yourself for having created two of those (BTW I'm impressed by the large numbers of stickers you submitted recently on the PT, great work !)

Great collaborative work on this one Wink
I'm especially fond of rope knot!
