Could you try reposting you video? It doesn't seem to be working.

You are Welcome! Great work you are doing there. I have found painting when pieces are separate make the job easier. I made a small wire "tree" stuck into a scrap 2x4 to hold all the parts while drying. My crank lifts the moonshiner about half an inch. It was originally almost an inch, but with that kind of lift the moonshiner would occasionally blast off of his box.

Andries, You got it! A simple crank and upright rod is what you need. making complicated workings does exactly that- makes things complicated! The carving looks great. Nothing beats a hand carved piece of wood. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Andries,slight change from the minion ?
