The Brewer-Titchener wood block pulley is an essential tool for ship’s operations. It was named after two American physiologist and psychologist Edwin G. Bower and E.B Titchener. This type of pulley helps in lifting and moving heavy loads, such as cargo and anchors. With minimal effort, sailors can use this device to hoist sails, raise anchors, and move cargo by distributing the force applied to the rope over a larger area. Additionally, the pulley changes the direction of the force applied to the rope, allowing for easy movement in different directions when loading and unloading cargo.
Not only is it functional, but it is also a great addition to the ship’s aesthetic. Hang this pulley from a ceiling and surround it with a fishing net and add some other small nautical items to it! The rustic look of the wood pulley blends seamlessly with the nautical theme of a ship, and its natural beauty can make for a great display.
On this pulley you will find the Company name, working load limit and the rope size.
