Ed Champagne of Epsom, New Hampshire made this unique holder for his mailbox. The crane was made with scrap metal, the cables are the type used for raising and lowering garage doors, the tires are 2-inch pieces of pipe with insulation discs for the rims, and the boom sections are made from round stock and welding rods. Ed uses mostly Lincoln welders in his job as a steelworker and personally owns two Lincoln wire feeder welders - a Weld-Pak 100 and Weld-Pak 155.
