WoodTrick pump jack makes desk toy!

The Wood Trick pump jack has finally found it's groove. Now to see how long it holds up! This thing was a blast to build and now I can watch it run for more than 45 seconds.

I really like that Tim , besides the marble lift,  this is the second one of these I would have liked to have owned.

That is a cool model, Tim. It would look fine running away on your desk or equally at home on a display table at a show, nestled amongst other machinery. The paint job was a crucial touch, and adds some nice character

Tim what a fantastic model, I had to look the company up and they make some very cool items.
Well done on the terrific mods you did. What a delightful thing to own.
