Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
It's overall length is 14 inches. The steel pulley wheel is 3 1/2 inches in diameter and 1 inch wide, and was intended to take a rope up to 3/4 inch in diameter.
The 4 x 6 inch pulley housing is wooden, the swiveling hook has a 1 3/8 inch opening.
The diamond shaped plate nailed to the block has an insignia etched into it that has become difficult to make out. It's an inverted triangle with what looks like a stylized capital "C" in the center. (If "Superman" started with a "C" this is what it would look like.)
The metal has a nice patina of very old black rust over much of the surface with red rust filling the rest.
This pulley is one of two that it takes to make a block and tackle. It could be used as the standing block (upper) in the simplest set which gives a mechanical advantage of 2 to 1, or it could be the moving or hauling block (lower) in a block and tackle which has a 3 to one mechanical advantage.
I'll ship it domestically in a Priority Flat Rate Box, the most economical method for something this heavy. Outside the U.S., contact me with your postal code and I'll be glad to figure your postal rate.
