Paul beat me to it about Old Order Amish. We have a large community of Amish in WNY with most of them being Old Order. They use Gasoline and diesel powered motors to run their shops. Many have overhead pulley systems to run their power tools that they modify. I have seen one Amish man convert a circular saw to run with a chain saw motor. However, this is frowned upon in this community. Most are not allowed to even own chain saws. The use of overhead pulley systems have been used for hundreds of years and this has not diminished the quality of work the Amish do.
