aa-gin pole with jib.JPG
Gin pole with "jib".This type of gin pole is erected nearly straight or plumb, and the jib swing around to lift things from different sides, such as position A and then rotated around the gin pole to position B.
This way it could lift logs or timbers and build the structure.

Block and tacle ratio-s.JPG
Block and tackle ration drawing.As you add lines or pulleys to your block and tackle set up you increase the mechanical advantage.
We use two blocks with two lines in each to make the lift 4 times greater than the pull.
What this means is if you want to lift 400 pounds you only have to pull 100 lbs of force.

Windlass-V6 with eye of timber god-s.JPG
CAD drawing of a windlassThis is a CAD drawing of a windlass, the darker wood is oak, and the lite wood is eastern white pine.
A mortise got cut too long by mistake and there was a need for a plug. This plug was carved to show an eye shape around a knot. And is know as "the one eyed timber god." He is watching us to make sure we don't make any more mistakes......
