    it’s gonna be a bit of work to mobile this bulky stuff around. something detachable in the body will be worth more of the overall function.

    @cartercl I built one and it can support and easy 30lbs. I bet some 2x4s are holding your weight right now- it’s what housed are built of. As for load rated – get real it works and is plenty strong all for under $50

    I built one of these and it works. It’s plenty strong enough to support any prosummer camera. Remember it’s a bunch of 2x4s that are holding up your house right now. As for the jackass talking about load rated- if you can afford one that is buy it. If your on a near zero budget like a lot of us this one works great and is plenty strong. One word of advice is get a good turntable that has no slack in it it makes a big difference in its performance

    If you need a longer jib arm just add another set of 2x3x8′s to the current jib arm and add some middle supports! It made mine just over 15 feet, works great I use it in my schools auditorium to film live events with multiple cameras…

    although when you put a 15-20 pound camera at the end plus a motorized pan tilt head the amount of counter weight you need is insane! so i had to extend the rear jib assembly (part that holds counter weight) about three feet. So my weights had more leverage.

    this it a pretty cool project but the weight it should be able to support would be like a pair of sneakers….It’s a bunch of bullshit, and none of it is load rated.

    Nice job for a wooden crane. I was just wondering; have you ever bent one of those 3″ screws and then drove the Phillips head driver through a finger? I now use one of them fancy pants driver drill magnetic extentions with a sleeve so as not to perforate my digits any more. Just a thought after watching the build.

    What about if you are wanting to make a 10ft or a 12ft jib arm? Where and how fare down do go on the arm for the center post of the arm?
