A Vintage Canada Block CO Triple Sheave Wooden Block Pulley consists of a wooden frame that supports three grooved wheels or sheaves. The device is designed to make lifting heavy loads easier by minimizing the amount of force required. The rope or cable passes through the sheaves, which distribute the weight evenly and reduce friction.
You will see on one side of the block pulley the words – The Canada Block Co., St. Catherine’s which is in Ontario, Canada. This is in remarkable shape!
