Thread: Pulley blocks

  1. #1

    Pulley blocks

    A few years ago my pal had a set of pulleys that were ideal. They were triple wheels, made of brass and of about an inch in diameter. They fitted easily into a pocket or small backpack and would lift a Fallow buck with ease. Try as I may I have not been able to find similar ones anywhere. Ideally I would get the type that lock themselves if one lets go of the rope. I have looked on all sorts of sites but am unfamiliar with some of the terms used in describing pulley blocks. Any ideas anyone please ?

    I went to a local supplier of lifting gear/tackle the ones I got were for boats perfect stainless bearings and frame and real high lift capacity for such a tiny thing or I guess try a boat spares website???

    Go to your local chandlers (sailing boat shop) and tell them what you want to do.
    A 3 to 1 block set with a jamming device is easy to make from standard dinghy fittings, the sort used on a standard kicking strap will do very well.

    Just tell them what you want to do with it, and tell them it has been suggested that a simple light dinghy size kicking strap would work.
    You should end up with the bits in the picture, the top pulley is a single wheel, with a shackle to support it, and a place to secure the standing end of the rope.
    The lower one has 2 pulleys and a jamming device, plus a place to secure a shackle. You add whatever you like or prefer to each end, so one end to the headboard of the truck or trailer, the other end a sliding noose to loop around the head, pull on rope and up she goes.
    The pulleys can be as small as you like for your purpose, just so long as they take 6mm rope, thinner is uncomfortable to pull on.
    If you want it really easy click here. Then just contact them to say how long you want it.

    What do you use as a gambrel in the field with your lifting gear? I have a David Stretton stainless folding gambrel, it's strong enough for a red stag but rather heavy to carry.
