I’ve been itching to make some wooden pullies since I saw this video:
These were made for hoisting a pair of kayaks up to the garage ceiling. The rollers are turned out of 3/4” hickory scraps and the blocks are cut from some maple pallet scraps. The axle is a 5/16” steel rod. The synthetic rope I used to strop the blocks stretched more than I’d like, but it seems to work.
