I'm stuck here:

http://www.richardswinburne.net/NA/machinarium-level4.jpg (not IMG'd to prevent spoilers)

I absolutely CANNOT swing across onto the platform. The paper tells me to swing. The walkthru tells me to swing, and I'm up in the swinging position but all I can do is click to drop down. I've scoured every mm of the level but there's no click available!?  Huh

TIA

You have to be moving in order to swing - you have other things on this level to do before you are able to do that

Sorry I should have been more specific: I cannot get onto the platform. The walkthrough book shows that I should just be able to wiggle myself across, but I cant, I just hang there.

EDIT: Just did it. You have to be REALLY quick to click in the right place as he's being elevated. Not so logical, just more lucky. Shame, because none of the other parts of this or previous games required that.

Where is the right place to click? I can't get him to swing at all, he just hangs there?

you need to get the claw's sequence right - spin, drop, spin. you can only jump off while it's spinning.

First arrange the claw sequence as mentioned above - spin, drop, spin, then pull the lever and get into the little wagon.

If you "just hang there" then you aren't in the right position. You have to get machine to spin you around the boiler first. And no, you don't have to be that quick.

Ok, I'm stupid. I have it to spin-drop-spin (1. down-2. up-3.down). What have I did wrong?

You have to set the control panel of the claw to let it
1. spin round the oven (that's low on the control panel, I think - you see the circling arrow symbol there)
2. lower itself down above the mine waggon (that's high on the control panel,  - you see the down arrow symbol)  to pick you up
3. spin once more.
On this spin, right after you've been lifted up, and before the claw starts a new round, you will have to click for your jump onto the little platform.

And yes, the sensitive area where you can give the side-swing-click is small; the moment, where you can do it is short.
