Thanks for the new pictures.   I wanted to see the boom closer.  It looks like you added a battery and electric motor?

I love it Blair!  You've inspired me to add a boom to one of my '34s.  I never did like the hand crank, ( except when I was a kid and I used thread for the cable).  It looks like what you did is simple enough for me to give it a try.
