Default Crank for Moving 1/3 and 1/2 Scale Engines

I had built a hand crank that keyed on to the fly wheel shaft and key this has been a huge help in loading and unloading or just moving around without steam up. Didn't realize how useful the crank was until I thought I had lost it at the last show. moving the engine around with out it is a lot more of a work out. turns out if you toss it in the bunker on top of the coal the vibration of trailering lets it sink down under the coal at least I didn't have to make a new one

wouldn't mind seeing a picture of the crank in action, if you have one handy!
